History of the Los Angeles Dodger All-Star selections
The greatest baseball franchise has a rich history in the all-star game, with multiple MVP winners. You’d be hard pressed to find a Dodger pitcher who was scored upon in 58 years of Dodger all-star appearances. Don Drysdale holds the all-star record with 19 strikeouts and won back to back games in 1967 and 1968, and for good measure also collected a save in 1963. Steve Garvey was one of the greatest all-star performers winning both the 1974 and 1978 All-Star MVP awards. Maury Wills won the 1962 All-Star MVP award and drove in the winning run in the 1966 All-Star game in his last all-star at bat. Mike Piazza slugged home runs in back to back all-star games.
