Charter a Private Jet to the MLB All Star Game
MLB All Star Game
Ever since 1933, when 49,200 sat in the stands in Chicago’s Comiskey Park to watch Babe Ruth hit a two-run homer just inside the right field foul pole, Major League Baseball’s All-Star Games have been an annual fan favorite.
They are so popular, in fact, that half a billion ballots were expected to be cast in 2015. Even taking into consideration that each person can vote online 35 times, that’s more than 14 million people casting ballots.
If you’re a fan lucky enough to get a ticket to one of the upcoming Midsummer Classics, Paramount Business Jets can arrange to get you there in style.

To ramp up the excitement as you get ready to head to a ballpark, here are some fast facts we dug up for you:
- The first game, on July 6, 1933, was the brainchild of Arch Ward, a Chicago Tribune sports editor who thought the showcase of talent would be a good addition to the Chicago World’s Fair, which was going on at the same time.
- It’s always played on the second or third Tuesday in July.
- St. Louis Cardinal “Wild Bill” Hallahan was the pitcher who threw the fastball Babe Ruth drove over the fence for the All-Star Game’s first home run.
- The Cardinals struck back in the sixth inning of that first All-Star Game when infielder Frankie Frisch hit one out of the park.
- The All-Star Game used to alternate yearly between National and American league parks. However, in recent years, the game has been awarded to parks deserving in some way, including that they’ve never hosted a game.
- Fans have chosen the All-Star rosters since 1970 but it wasn’t always that way. In 1933 and 1934, both managers and fans picked them. From 1935 to 1946, managers selected the teams on their own. From 1947 to 1957, fans chose the starters and managers chose the pitchers and bench players. From 1958 through 1969, selections were made by managers, players and coaches.
- 2015 was the first year all votes were cast online. Ballots were offered in English, Spanish, traditional Chinese, Korean and Japanese. They were also available in an audio version visually-impaired fans.
