Wang's career numbers vs. Jays:  3-0, 2.89 in 4 starts.  McGowan's career numbers vs. Yanks:  1-0, 4.60 in 6 games.

Today marks the 30th Anniversary of the 1977 All-Star Game held at Yankee Stadium in front of 56,683 fans.  Don Sutton hurled three scoreless innings and won the MVP for the National League en route to a 7-5 victory over the American League.

You can view both rosters, starting lineups, and line score by clicking here.  I counted nineteen Hall of Famers (16 players, 3 managers/coaches) on these two squads and there will probably be a few more voted in eventually.
