1989 HEADLINE: Bo Jackson & Wade Boggs Kick Off The All-Star Game With A Bang!!!

On this day in 1989, Bo Jackson and Wade Boggs led off the 1989 Major League All-Star game with back-to-back home runs.

I vividly recall watching this game as a youngster living in the Chicago suburbs. And after the National League was retired in the first inning I was excited to see what Bo Jackson was going to do in his debut at the All-Star Game.

Well, Bo did not disappoint.

And after he touched home while listening to the roar of the crowd, Wade Boggs took center stage. And he too delivered baseball magic.

It was a sweet start to a great game. And a memory that I will hold with me for a very, very long time.

Happy Anniversary to Bo Jackson and Wade Boggs!!!
