The 1990 AAA All-Star Game was played on July 11, 1990. The site was Cashman Field, home of the Las Vegas Stars. This would be the third battle between the American League and National League affiliates.

The home team National League would be managed by Kevin Kennedy of the Albuquerque Dukes. His assistants were Terry Collins of the Buffalo Bisons and Bill Dancy of the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Red Barons. The AL would be led by Syracuse Chiefs manager Bob Bailor with help from Marv Foley of the Vancouver Canadians and Dave Machemer of the Denver Zephyrs. The game aired on the Prime Network with Jay Randolph, Rick Monday and Bobby Murcer calling the game.

The NL got the early lead in the game scoring one in the bottom of the second off of AL starter Scott Chiamparino. That lead would be short lived, though as the AL would score two in the next half inning when Juan Gonzalez took NL starter Dorn Taylor yard for a two run shot. The NL came back with 3 of their own in the bottom of the third to take a 4-2 lead. The NL would never trail again in the game. A lone run, on an RBI single by Todd Haney for the AL in the top of the 4th made things interesting in the middle innings until the NL added two more in both the 6th and 8th. Joe Redfield hit another two run shot for the AL to make it 8-5, but that was to be the final score as Dave Walsh settled down and sealed the victory for the National League.

Despite the loss two of the three Stars of Stars awards went to AL players. The American Association's award went to Oklahoma City 89ers outfielder Juan Gonzalez for his two run homer in the 3rd, he would finish the game going 2-5. Syracuse Chiefs second basemen Luis Sojo won the International League award going 4-5 with a triple and a run scored. Eddie Williams of the home town Las Vegas Stars won the award for the Pacific Coast League going 1-2 with a RBI, run scored and a stolen base.

In addition to Gonzalez other future big league stars in the game included David Segui, Mark Whiten, Tim Naehring, Jose Offerman, Bernard Gilkey and Darrin Fletcher.
