Major League Baseball’s All-Star Game is always a special event, but it’s hard to top the scene that played out at Fenway Park on July 13, 1999.
Fenway played host to one of the greatest moments in baseball history at the 70th Midsummer Classic when 80-year-old Sox legend Ted Williams emerged from the outfield on a golf cart to a thunderous standing ovation from the Fenway faithful.
After a lap around the field, Williams was surrounded by All-Stars both past and present on the infield grass. The Red Sox great was then escorted to the mound by San Diego Padres All-Star Tony Gwynn and threw out the game’s ceremonial first pitch to more overwhelming applause.
Relive the unforgettable moment in the video above.
