All-Star game should not decide home-field advantage

I love baseball, and, in my humble opinion, it is the most exciting sports game ever devised. Since 1947, enjoyably, I have watched the game. I have been privileged to see, in person, 12 World Series games. Perhaps the most memorable was the 1977 World Series pitting the New York Yankees against my beloved Dodgers. The Series lasted six games with the Yankees coming out on top. The highlight of that series was the remarkable performance by Yanks outfield, Reggie Jackson, Mr. October, who hit five home runs. The last four of those came off the first pitch thrown by four different Dodger pitchers. The last of them came off knuckleballer, Charlie Hough, and the ball landed in the center field black seats in the old Yankee Stadium. Now, that was a drive. Even as a Dodger fan, watching that performance in person, I could not help but to enjoy, and appreciate this unbelievable achievement.
