Over the years, every team has been well represented in the MLB All-Star Game. But what players have been the worst selections of all-time for their respective teams?
The MLB All-Star Game is a tradition that has marked the midway point of the summer since the point when the first All-Star Game was played in 1933. Almost since the moment of its inception, there has also been another tradition that has reigned supreme; debate over the rosters.
Throughout that time, the debate has typically been centered on those who were unduly snubbed by the voters and then subsequently left off the roster when reserves were later announced. Everybody has a voice as to which of their favorite players deserved to go or were at least entitled to more consideration. In some cases, there are just too many worthy candidates to send everyone to the Midsummer Classic.
But what of those players that truly had no place making the All-Star Game roster to begin with? Whether it be via the fan vote or through the antiquated rule that requires every team to have at least one representative at the game, there have undoubtedly been those that should have enjoyed the weekend on the golf course rather than being deemed “All-Stars”.
Over the years, every team has been the recipient of one or more dubious All-Star selections. But which were the worst of the worst, the one All-Star in each team’s history that just didn’t deserve the honor?
