|Ken Brett: George Brett's older brother played in the majors for 14 seasons, on 10 different teams. 1974 was the only All Star team he would make. A great hitter, his .310 batting average was higher than six of the eight starting position players on the Pirates in 1974, a team that won the National League Eastern division title.|
Ken was credited with the win in this game, pitching scoreless 4th and 5th innings.
|Buzz Capra: Like Ken Brett, 1974 was the only All Star game Buzz Capra would make. He was in the middle of best big league season, he would finish 16–8 with a NL leading 2.28 earned run average.|
He did not pitch in the game.
|Steve Carlton: A dominate ace, Lefty would be named to 10 All Star games and win 4 NL Cy Young Awards during his Hall of Fame career. In 1974 he led the NL with 240 strikeouts.|
He did not pitch in the game.
|Mike Marshall: The leading bullpen workhorse in the National League, Marshall made the All Star team in both 1974 and 1975. He led the league in appearances 4 times, including a record 106 games in in 1974. He was also named the Cy Young Award winner in 1974.|
In this game, he pitched the final two innings without giving up a run.
|Jon Matlack: This was the first of what would be 3 consecutive All Star appearances for the Mets lefthander. He would win the MVP of the 1975 game.|
He pitched a scoreless sixth inning for the NL.
|Lynn McGlothen: Appearing on his only career All Star team, Lynn McGlothen would finish the season with a 16–12 record with an impressive 2.70 ERA.|
He pitched a perfect 7th inning for the NL.
|Steve Rogers: As the lone rep for the lowly Expos, this was the 1st of 5 career All Star appearances for Rogers. He would end the season with a league leading 22 losses. In 1982, he would start the the All Star Game for the NL.|
He did not pitch in this game.
|Lou Brock. Selected to six All Star squads during his 19 year Hall of Fame career, Lou Brock was still a few weeks away from breaking Maury Wills' single-season stolen base record of 104. He ended the season with a new major league single-season record of 118 stolen bases.|
He entered the game as a pinch hitter in the 5th inning and delivered a single. Appropriately, he stole second base, went to third on a throwing error, and scored on Joe Morgan's RBI sacrafice fly.
|Dave Cash. Originally a Pirate, Cash made the All Star team in all three seasons he played with the Phillies ('74, '75, and '76).|
In this game, he entered the game as a pinch hitter in the 7th, flying out to center. He replaced Joe Morgan an finished the game at second base.
|Cesar Cedeno. Never living up to the "Next Willie Mays" billing he was given by Leo Durocher... Cedeno made 4 career All Star appearances for the Astros. He started in centerfield for the 1973 game.|
In this game, Cesar replaced Hank Aaron in the 4th inning and went hitless in 2 plate appearances.
|Ralph Garr. This was the only All Star game for the 1974 NL Batting Champion. Ralph had 149 hits heading into the All-Star break that year, a record that stands to this day.|
Garr was the first NL reserve to get into the game when he pinch hit for the starting pitcher Andy Messersmith in the 3rd inning. He stayed in left field through the 7th inning and went 0 for 3.
|Jerry Grote. Making his second and final career All Star appearance, Grote was a favorite of NL manager Yogi Berra.|
In the game, he replaced starter Johnny Bench to catch the 9th inning. He never came to bat.
|Johnny Grubb. Someone from the San Diego Padres had to make the All Star team in 1974, and Grubb was that man. It would be his only career selection.|
He popped out to the shortstop in his only at bat.
|Don Kessinger. Playing in his sixth and final career All Star Game, Kessinger was the starting shortstop for the NL four times.|
He made the most of his one at bat, tripling to the gap in right-center field in the bottom of the 8th inning, driving in Mike Schmidt. He later scored on Fingers wild pitch.
|Tony Perez. Overshadowed by his more popular teammates, Perez made seven All Star games in his career. He won the 1967 All Star MVP when he hit a game winning walk off HR in the 15th inning.|
He appeared as a pinch hitter in the 6th inning and struck out.
|Mike Schmidt. 1974 was the first of 12 All Star Games for the greatest third baseman in baseball history. He would go on to win his first of 8 NL HR crowns this season.|
Schmidt replaced Ron Cey in the sixth inning and walked in both of his plate appearances. He scored on Kessinger's triple in the 8th.
|Ted Simmons. Although he was overshadowed by Johnny Bench, made 8 different All Star teams in his 21 year career.|
He did not play in this game.
|Reggie Smith. In his 17 year big league career, Reggie Smith made 7 All Star Games with three different teams. He started the 1980 game as a member of the Dodgers.|
This game featured 17 future Hall of Famers, but Reggie Smith was the only player to hit a home run in this game.
|Chris Speier. 1974 was the third straight (and final career) All Star appearance for Chris Speier. He was the lone representative for the Giants.|
He did not play.
