today in 1971
the 1971 all star game at Tiger Stadium in Detroit, Reggie Jackson hit a home run for the ages. in the bottom of the third, Jackson hit a Dock Ellis pitch that ended up hitting one of the light towers that was on the right field roof. it was estimated to go 520 feet. the A.L. won 6-4. Jackson was one of six players that homered in the game. Frank Robinson was MVP of that game. it was the only AL all star win between 1962 and 1983.
