The American League is a 6 to
5 favorite. The fact that the
American will be playing in its
home park and the past history
that shows an American 13-9 edge
probably accounts for the favorit-
ism. The National, however, has
won five of the last six, including
the 1955 game at Milwaukee when
Stan Musial broke it up with a

WE'VE DISCUSSED the American's greater power, but the National
League has also gained in its weak department. No longer can the
American League boast of its pitching supremacy when every National
League team has a lower earned run rating than the corresponding club
in the American Loop.
Even the front-running Yankees, White Sox and Indians have not
been burning up the league with their pitching. In the National, how-
ever, the Braves and Pirates have stayed in any kind of contention
mainly due to their hurling. The Giants also have pitching, the likes
of which can't be found in the American.
Representatives such as Don Newcombe, Bob Friend, Joe Nuxhall,
Brooks Lawrence, Robin Roberts, Johnny Antonelli and Warren Spahn
appear equal to the American League's Whitey Ford, Billy Pierce, Jim
Wilson, Early Wynn, Herb Score, Johnny Kucks and Tom Brewer.
All of this seems to point to a very even match when the teams take
the field today. Whatever the results may be, the fans who pay their way
into Griffith Stadium or who hear and see the game on radio or TV
will be well rewarded.
For this is the contest that involves the greatest stars in the majors.
It's the one and only All Star Game.
