Barack Obama's All-Star Game opening pitch started off a night of memorable festivities for the 2009 mid-summer classic.

Obama's All-Star Game experience, he said, was “as much fun as I've had in quite some time.” (You know, besides being elected President).

In honor of the mid-summer classic of 2009 and Obama's All-Star Game appearance, here are a collection of memorable baseball innovations, from $350,000 team photos to women in the big leagues. Enjoy!
