Padres’ Top 10 All-Star Moments: 10-6

6 of 6

6. N.L. M.V.P Blast!

The National League Most Valuable Player in 1996 third baseman Ken Caminiti hit a towering home run at Veterans Stadium in Philadelphia that probably still hasn’t landed yet. That blast hit sky high to left-center and was one of the longest recorded home runs in Veterans Stadium history and the first home run by a Padre ever in an All-Star Game.

Both Ken Caminiti and Tony Gwynn were the lone representatives for the Padres in 1996. The National League went on to win 6-0 with Tony Gwynn voted into the starting lineup by the fans and peers of the game. Gwynn could not play that night due to an injury.
