All Star Game Red Carpet Parade

A view out the window at 3AM on Monday night/Tuesday morning.

The red carpet laid down on the street was for the fourth annual All-Star Game Red Carpet Parade that headed up 6th Avenue in Manhattan on Tuesday afternoon. The parade stretched from 40th street all the way up to 58th Street and lasted about two hours.

The members of both All-Star teams were joined by 49 members of the Hall of Fame including baseball greats Hank Aaron, Yogi Berra, Wade Boggs, Rod Carew, Dennis Eckersley, Rollie Fingers, Whitey Ford, Goose Gossage, Tony Gwynn, Reggie Jackson, Tommy Lasorda, Willie Mays, Jim Palmer, Don Sutton, and many others.

Buses were diverted.
