73 different players representing the Yankees have had at least one plate appearance (PA) in an All-Star game (ASG). That’s the most for any one franchise. The Dodgers are second, with 70 different players having had at least one PA in an All-Star game. At the other end of the scale, the Rays franchise has had nine different players with at least one All-Star game PA.
Willie Mays had 79 ASG plate appearances while with the Giants. That’s the most by any one player representing a particular franchise. Stan Musial had 72 PAs in All-Star Games, all for the Cardinals, his only team — that’s second only to Mays in ASG PAs for a particular franchise. More on this theme, after the jump. Brooks Robinson had 47 ASG PAs for the Orioles, a high number, but not the most for the Orioles, as Cal Ripken had 52 plate appearances in All-Star games. That 47 ASG PA number for Robinson is the most by any player who does not lead his franchise in this category.
Below is a table that lists, for each of the 30 current major league franchises, the number of different players who have had at least one ASG plate appearance while representing that franchise. The table also lists the player with the most ASG PAs for the franchise (and the number of his ASG PAs for the franchise), as well as the player with the second-most ASG PAs for that franchise (and, again, the number of his ASG PAs for the franchise). After Tuesday’s game, I’ll update the table to include this year’s data.
