10 best MLB All-Star Game performances by New York players

Gehrig played in six straight All-Star Games between 1933 and 1938, and his performance in the American League’s 8-3 win at Griffith Stadium in D.C. easily stands out as his best. Gehrig opened the scoring in the third with a two-run homer to right field, driving home teammate Joe DiMaggio. In the sixth inning, with the National League fighting back, Gehrig put the game out of reach with a two-out, two-run double to extend the A.L. lead to 8-3. The All-Star MVP award wasn’t given until 1962, but Gehrig likely would have won it, as his four RBIs and six total bases led the winning A.L. side.
