All Star Game Played in Atlanta

Major League Baseball’s 1972 All-Star Game was played at Atlanta Fulton-County Stadium. Atlanta Braves’ great Hank Aaron had a two-run homer, but it took a 10th-inning hit by Joe Morgan to give the National League a 4-3 win. This was the third time that the Braves had hosted the all-star game - but the first time since moving to Atlanta. The 1972 game was the only all-star game held in Atlanta Fulton-County Stadium - though the game was played in Atlanta’s Turner Field in 2000.
