SEEING STARS: Major League Baseball held its first All-Star Game on this day in 1933. The game took place at Comiskey Park in Chicago. Babe Ruth homered to lead the American League to a 4-2 victory over the National League. Prior to the summer of 1933, All-Star contests consisted of pre- and postseason exhibitions that often found teams made up of a few stars playing beside journeymen and even minor leaguers.

MEET THE BEATLES: John Lennon and Paul McCartney met on this day in 1957. In Liverpool, England, the 15-year-old McCartney watched a band called the Quarrymen, led by the 16-year-old Lennon. The two teens met later that day and before long created one of the most popular rock groups of the 20th century.
