July 7, 1964 - from the Baltimore Sun by Lou Hatter, Sun Staff Writer - Newspaper Clipping as follows: New York - Shea Stadium - Johnny Callison's tie-breaking homer with two mates aboard capped a four-run ninth-inning rally and carried the National League to a 7-4 triumph over the American League in baseball's thirty-fifth All-Star Classic here today. The blast off the right-field auxiliary scoreboard by the Philadelphia Phillies outfielder followed a walk and stole base by San Francisco Giant star center-fielder Willie Mays, teammate Orlando Cepeda's bloop single to right on which Yankee first baseman Joe Pepitone's bad-hop peg to home plate enabled Mays to score the tying run. An intentional pass to Cincinnati's catcher Johnny Edwards put runners on first and second. Struck with dramatic impact off Boston Red Sox Dick Radatz after two were out in the final frame. Callison's long base bomb squared the midseason carnival of the game's super stars at 17 victories apiece plus one tie. Earlier in the game, Billy Williams of the Cubs and Ken Boyer of the Cardinals each hit solo home runs and Cardinal shortstop Dick Groat doubled in a run in the bottom of the 5th to give the NL a 3-1 lead. In the top of the 6th, Orioles' legendary third baseman Brooks Robinson tripled in a pair of runs to put the Americans up 4-to-3.
