  • Jack McKeon became the oldest manager to manage an All-Star game after becoming the oldest manager to manage a World Series in 2003 with the Florida Marlins.
  • Roger Clemens gave up six runs in one inning for the first time in his major-league career.
  • In the top of the first inning, the American League hit for the cycle for the first time in All-Star Game history.
  • This was the first All-Star Game to be broadcast in high-definition.
  • This was also the first All-Star Game in which Joe Buck, the play-by-play announcer for Fox, announced the coaches, reserves, managers and starters for both the American League and National League.
  • Carlos Beltrán was originally selected to start in the outfield for the AL and represent the Kansas City Royals, but was traded to Houston a few weeks before this game, but still played in the game as a defensive substitution for Lance Berkman. Beltrán was on the roster because original starter Ken Griffey Jr. was hurt and Beltrán took his spot as a substitute.
  • This was also the last All-Star Game for Hall of Fame shortstop Barry Larkin, as he would retire before the 2005 season.
  • The day after hosting the game, the Astros fired manager Jimy Williams and replaced him with Phil Garner.[1]
