A president dies, new nations are born, the MLB All-Star Game goes indoors, and a jam band performs for the last time, all on this day.
1968: The first MLB All-Star game to be played indoors takes place at the Houston Astrodome. The National League defeats the American League 1-0 with Willie Mays, who led off the first with a single, advanced two bases on wild throws and scored the game's only run on a fielder's choice, earning MVP honors.
