July 7, 1959 - Sox pitcher Early Wynn starts the first of the two All Star Games played that season. This one is in Pittsburgh. Wynn, who’d go on to take the Cy Young Award that season, goes three innings allowing one run. He doesn’t get a decision in the N.L.’s 5 - 4 win.

July 7, 1982 - It was the ‘coming out’ party for Sox outfielder Harold Baines. In a game in Chicago against the Tigers, Baines blasted three home runs in the Sox 7 - 0 win. One of his blasts was a grand slam, he’d drive in six of the Sox seven runs. Later that week at Toronto in a 16 - 5 win, he’d hammer two more home runs including a second grand slam and knock in five more RBI’s. No wonder he was named A.L. Player Of The Week!

I don't know if anybody here would know the reasoning behind this, but why were there 2 All Star Games played per year for a couple of years?

It was basically greed by the owners and players to boost the players pension system. Ruined the idea of the game for a few years after.
