As a broadcaster, he called the AL's 4-3 victory in 15 innings in 2008 in New York as his most memorable.

“The 15-inning game in Yankee Stadium to send the Grand Old Lady on her way in 2008 was just a tremendous game, the longest game in All-Star Game history. We were on the edge of our seats, as I'm sure a lot of fans were throughout.”

McCarver said the NL might have an advantage Tuesday night with its seven left-handed pitchers, compared to three for the AL.

“Having that many left-handers can allow manager Bruce Bochy to go one-on-one with certain left-handed hitters late in the game, and that is an advantage,” he said.
