Game 1 was held on July 19 at Seibu Dome in front of 24,999 fans. Hideki Matsui became the youngest cleanup hitter in All-Star history, and he was 1-for-4. Daiei's players shined in this game, Koji Akiyama was 3-for-4, with a homer off Keiichi Yabu to win the MVP, while Koichiro Yoshinaga and Hiromi Matsunaga both also collected three hits. The PL's Makoto Sasaki and Hirofumi Ogawa added two homers, and the CL only scored on Shinichi Murata's 5th-inning single.
