The All-Star Game, a Midsummer fixture since 1933, became a double feature in 1959. Two games were scheduled to help give the players' pension fund a boost. The National League captured the first contest by a run, but the American League earned the split a month later on the strength of three home runs.

Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Wally Moon, playing for the National League in the All-Star game at Los Angeles Aug. 3, 1959, is a sliding out at second base in the fifth inning as Chicago White Sox's Nellie Fox whips the ball to first. Throw was too late to catch Cardinals Joe Cunningham at first for a double play.
