From Major League Baseball All-Star Game History by Baseball Almanac:

“Through the years, every franchise has had its share of superstar players that stand out above the rest. They are the ones that bring the fans out to the ballpark and only one game brings them all together at once, The All-Star Game.

“The first Major League All-Star Game was played on July 6, 1933 at Comiskey Park in Chicago. It was initiated at the insistence of Arch Ward, a sports editor for the Chicago Tribune, to coincide with the celebration of Chicago's Century of Progress Exposition. For [85] years, the "Midsummer Classic" has remained a fan favorite showcasing the top talent in baseball.”
