All Star Countdown 15

June 28, 1993

July 13, 1993 Oriole Park at Camden Yards

Former Brooklyn Dodgers catcher Roy Campanella, who died Saturday night after suffering a heart attack, was an All-Star every year from 1949 to 1956, but he didn't have much success in the midseason game, going 2-for-20, with one run scored.

He had no hits in 16 plate appearances going into the eighth inning of the 1953 game when he bounced a single to center off the oldest pitcher in All-Star Game history, Satchel Paige, 47.
