TV Broadcast: TV Asahi.  Commentators: Atsuya Furuta, Kimiyasu Kudo.

Awards
MVP: Arai
Fighting Spirit: Sakamoto, Senga, Hasegawa

General: Hall of Fame induction ceremonies for Yutaka Ono and Yoshiro Sotokoba took place before the game. ... No home runs were hit during Saturday's All-Star game, extending the homerless drought to two games.  That is the longest streak since zero home runs were hit during a three-game All-Star Series in 1953.  Source: Sponichi 7/20/2013

PL: Makita apparently raised his arm angle a bit when facing Sakamoto, but no one seemed to noticed because it actually was not raised as much as he thought it was.  Source: Daily Sports 7/20/2013 ... Senga struck out four in a row at one point. ... Otani's lead-off double in the 1st was the first All-Star hit of his career.

CL: Fujinami threw two slow pitches close to Nakata in the 6th inning -- Nakata knew of the first pitch, but did not think another would be thrown; Nishioka told Fujinami to throw the first pitch, Tanishige suggested Fujinami throw the second pitch; Nakata pretended to charge the mound.  Source: Daily Sports 7/20/2013, Daily Sports 7/20/2013, Daily Sports 7/20/2013

    the “slow pitches” seen in the allstar games are known in the usa as the “eephus pitch”. As rare here as it is in japan, there is footage of Orlando Hernandez throwing the pitch to Alex Rodruiguez of Texas – Arod hits it for a homer, but its one of the rare times it was thrown in a game in the past twenty years.
    Very cool to see it in NPB AllStar Games!!

      I vividly remember the Perez eephus (I think he called it the Pascual Pitch) that he threw to Glenn Davis in the 1980′s that Davis double clutched and crushed. Couldn’t find a video online, though.

      Not quite an eephus, but back when Komiyama was still playing he used to throw his “Shake ball”, which was pretty slow, though without the height of an eephus.
