While watching the MLB Network's Prime 9 episode of the greatest players that never made an All Star game, these three things jumped out at me:
1. Kirk Gibson, winner of an MVP, and two-time World Champ, never made an All Star team. WHHHHAATTTT?
2. Dennis Leonard won 20 games three times. Never made an All Star team. He was an excellent second half pitcher, but the three years he won 20 games he was around 7-7 on average at the break.
3. Hank Greenberg, while he did make four All Star teams, had 103 RBI at the break in 1935.... and missed the All Star game.
These three things fascinated me. Anything that anyone else can think of? There's a ton of baseball knowledge on this board, I'd love to see more oddities, whether related to the All Star game or not.
WOY, I'm especilaly interested to see what you may have to offer here .
