Here’s what happened on this day in New York Mets history:

1968: Appropriately for 1968, pitching dominates the All-Star Game. Willie Mays, playing in place of injured Pete Rose, tallies an unearned run in the first inning against A.L. starter Luis Tiant to complete the scoring for the day. It is the first All-Star effort to end 1-0. Don Drysdale, Juan Marichal, Steve Carlton, Tom Seaver, Ron Reed, and Jerry Koosman hold the A.L. to three hits.

1998: New York Mets signed free agent Jerrod Riggan.

2001: New York Mets released Darryl Hamilton.
