Reader JSE asked in the Suggestions about who holds the record for most career ABs with strikeouts in every single AB. He cited Daniel Cabrera as having 11 careers ABs and 11 K's.
Turns out, Cabrera is the record-holder, at least since 1901. Here are all 134 careers with at least 11 AB and a batting average of zero. A quick comparison of the AB and SO columns shows that Cabrera is the only guy with as many SO as AB.
Junior Herndon got close with 11 Ks in 12 ABs.
Mind you, I think there are tons of guys who missed by 1 or 2 strikeouts but also got at least 1 career hit, so they don't appear on this list without a career batting average of zero.
