Cal Ripken - 3B - 2001 A.L.


Before you get upset, yes, obviously Cal Ripken was a great player -- one of the best.  But this list is to identify the worst All-Star selections in individual seasons, and in 2001, Ripken was pretty bad.  The Iron Man finished that year hitting just .239 with a .276 on-base percentage, both career lows.  Clearly, this was a sentimental selection, but it does not excuse the pick -- he was hitting just .240 with 4 HR and an OPS+ of 56 at the time of the All-Star Game.  To his credit though, Ripken gave the fans what they wanted, starting the game at shortstop and hitting his second career All-Star Game home run.
