The first MLB All Star Game took place in 1933 as part of the World's Fair in Chicago, IL. Created as just a one-time event, the MLB All Star Game was such a success, that it became an annual event. It has since thrived with stars from around the league playing side by side, year after year.
In 1985, the MLB All Star Game added what some consider the best part of the all star weekend, the Home Run Derby. On the day before the MLB All Star Game itself, sluggers from both leagues come together to see who can launch the most homers and become crowned the home run derby champion. So far one man has been able to capture more titles than anyone else, and that man is Ken Griffey, Jr. With three wins, Griffey won in 1994, 1998 and 1999. All other players have no more than one win.
