Recalling the 1975 All Star Game at Milwaukee County Stadium
As this year’s All-Star Break wraps up, I’d like to take a look back to the 1975 All-Star Game that was played at Milwaukee County Stadium. The 46th contest between the American and National Leagues happened on July 15, 1975.
This was the first of two times in Milwaukee Brewers franchise history that the team hosted the ASG, but was the second time the game was played at County Stadium. The first time was in 1955 when the Braves were hosts. This gave County Stadium the distinction of being one of three ballparks to host the ASG with two different franchises. The others were Shibe Park in Philadelphia and Sportsman’s Park in St. Louis.
