How It Happened: When did the All-Star Game still matter? When did players still care about result as much as seeing their name on the roster?

There is one answer, one moment that is better and more memorable than all the rest. Pete Rose bulldozing catcher Ray Fosse to score the winning run in the bottom of the 12th inning exemplified one career, retarded another (Fosse suffered a separated shoulder and never fully recovered) and may be the single moment when the game's theme went from "win at any cost" to "just don't get hurt."
