#98 is here.

#97 July 10, 1984 The All-Star Game

The second All Star Game held at Candlestick; Fernando Valenzuela and a 19 year old rookie Dwight Gooden struck out the AL side in consecutive innings (Fernando got Hall of Famers - Winfield, Reggie, Brett) Gooden was baseball's phenom in '84, the youngest player in All Star history.  The NL won and a Giants legend from a prior era, Carl Hubbell, threw out the first ball.

#96 is tomorrow.
