Remember the 2002 MLB All-Star Game? Well, it seems like someone in the league was hoping you didn’t. The MLB set up part of its scoreboard at the 2013 All-Star Game at Citi Field to show the results of the recent Midsummer Classics, but something was mysteriously missing Monday night before the Home Run Derby took place. The scoreboard showed the score from the 2001 All-Star Game, then jumped to results from the 2003 All-Star Game, leaving out the results from 2002. The 2002 Midsummer Classic lives in infamy as the game that ended in a 7-7 tie after 11 innings. Both the NL and AL teams had run out of pitchers in the eleventh and, after commissioner Bud Selig met with coaches Joe Torre and Bob Brenly, it was determined that if the NL team didn’t score in the bottom of the inning the game would end in a tie. Fans booed and chanted things like “Let them play!” when the announcement was made over the PA system that the game could end in a tie. The game eventually ended without a winner — and without an MVP award given. The game remains a black mark on Selig’s tenure and it’s clear people haven’t forgotten. Check out the photos below to see the MLB’s revised history and their subsequent acknowledgement of the game. It's @MLB revisionist history. The tied All-Star Game in 2002 didn't happen. http://t.co/BqSq1sJOpl— Craig Calcaterra (@craigcalcaterra) July 15, 2013 So the 2002 ASG tie did happen after all. Back on scoreboard after yesterday's odd absence http://t.co/RCj9AfxMsl— Eric Fisher (@EricFisherSBJ) July 16, 2013
