The All-Star Game of shadows

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Tony Clark remembers his lone All-Star at-bat.

He remembers that it was in Seattle, in 2001, against Jon Lieber. And he remembers that because of the shadows at Safeco Field, he could barely see the ball.

"It was tough," Clark said, thinking ahead to another late-afternoon All-Star start -- and more shadows -- Tuesday at Angel Stadium.

While Clark had trouble with the shadows, Lieber did give up home runs in that same sixth inning to Derek Jeter and Magglio Ordonez. But perhaps in part because of the shadows, the 2001 All-Star Game was low-scoring, a 4-1 AL win.

How bad will the shadows be Tuesday?

Angels manager Mike Scioscia said they may not be that bad.

"With a 5 o'clock start, they're bearable, but not great," Scioscia said. "If it was a 4 o'clock start, they'd really be bad. Starting at 5, it could be an issue early, but not as bad."

The last All-Star Game in Anaheim finished as a 5-3 AL win. But that game was played when the stadium was still double-deck all the way around, so the shadows would have been much different.
