This year's game likely got a ratings boost from Derek Jeter, who started at shortstop in his final season before retirement. Jeter and Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout combined to go 4-5 with two runs scored and two RBI, to lead the American League to a 5-3 victory. Trout was named the game's MVP.
