WSC All-Stars: Rip Radcliff 1936
Rip started in left field for the American League All-Stars in 1936. Radcliff first stepped up to the plate in the top of the second inning with two out, but the Yankees first baseman Lou Gehrig was picked off at first base and the inning ended. Rip then led of the top of the third inning, where he grounded out to St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Dizzy Dean.
Radcliff appeared in the top of the fifth, again with two outs. This time, he ripped a single to center off of New York Giants pitcher Carl Hubbell, which was the only hit for the AL team that inning. Goose Goslin, representing the Detroit Tigers, replaced Radcliff in left field in the bottom of the sixth inning.
