  • Both the American and National League Starting Pitchers would be on the Red Sox 2004 World Series Championship team.
  • The Yankees–Red Sox rivalry was magnified with two instances. Joe Torre was the manager of the American League team because the Yankees were the American League Champions the year before. Yankees SS Derek Jeter was brought into the game to replace starting SS, Nomar Garciaparra (of the Red Sox). Jeter was brought in after Garciaparra already had taken the field. Torre did this so the fans at Fenway would cheer for Nomar leaving the field and not boo Jeter taking the field to start the inning. Jeter, when coming to bat, did a tribute to Garciaparra by mimmicking his batting stance.
  • Hall of Famer Ted Williams threw out the first pitch of the all star game. Before throwing the first pitch he was announced at Fenway as the greatest hitter of all time.
