All-star Countdown 22

June 21, 1993

July 13, 1993 Oriole Park at Camden Yards

Expecting to see the Orioles' Cal Ripken knock one out in this year's All-Star Game? If he did it would go against an All-Star trend.

It has been more than 20 years since a player homered in an All-Star Game in his home park. The last to do it was Hank Aaron with the Atlanta Braves in 1972. The last American League player to do it was Frank Howard of the Washington Senators at RFK Stadium in 1969.
