Is there a way to find other nonpitchers who were named to the All-Star team despite batting below .200 at the break?

Kingturtle, some of those early 20th century seasons were fewer than 154 games, but you're right, it appears that Bergen still would not qualify for the batting title by modern standards.

i suppose also the instances are more frequent in early years because the qualification standards were much lower? in none of bill bergen's six times on this list did he reach more that 372 PA. i understand and respect why B-R does this, but it would be nice to also have a feature in which we could search 3.1 PA/G as the standard for all seasons.

by the way, what's up with the name bill in this stat? 25% of the occurrences were by someone named bill or billy: six times by bill bergen!

I think we can all agree that keeping the main site running well, stats updating, etc, is more important. A number of readers have been pretty impatient about this, and I think you folks should take a moment to re-evaluate.

Actualyl I think my playoff predictions from last year were pretty good, except for the AL West.

At that rate he would created 65.9 runs in 162 team games which would be the most ever for anyone with a BA less than .200. The current leader is Rob Deer with 60 in 1991 (.175 BA). Chris Young is on pace for 56 which would currently be good for second place all time.
