Best players to never make an MLB All-Star roster: 7. Garry Maddox

Stats:

  • 1,802 hits
  • 117 home runs
  • .285 batting average

Outside of knocking balls out of the park, Garry Maddox was a terrific player.

The long ball always gets fans excited but that simply wasn’t his style. It didn’t matter if the ball left the yard or not, Maddox merely wanted to get it in play. Although he has a handful of notable seasons in which he could’ve been given All-Star consideration, 1976 is an absolute head-scratcher.

On the year, Maddox was amongst the league’s best hitters, batting .330 from the mound. He had a very good OPS of .833 and most importantly, the Phillies racked up 101 wins. Not only does Maddox have a World Series ring to his name but he’s also an eight-time Gold Glove winner. Despite that, All-Star voters never looked his way.
