The annual MLB All-Star Game is usually a showcase of the best players that season. It’s a fun game where players from the A.L. and N.L. get to play a single game in front of a large TV audience. For some players, however, playing in the All-Star Game has not been all that positive, especially on the field.

Several players, including players who are in baseball’s Hall of Fame, have abysmal batting averages in All-Star Game competition. Orlando Cepeda, who was voted into the Hall in 1999 by the Veterans’ Committee, played in nine All-Star Games, starting seven of them. In those games he had only one hit in 27 at-bats, a .037 batting average. Of all players who had 15 or more All-Star Game at-bats, Cepeda has the lowest batting average.

Here’s a look at the 10 players (minimum of 15 All-Star Game at-bats) who have the worst batting averages in ASG history.
