The most unbreakable records in MLB history: 25 All-Star selections

This record is a bit unfair but that’s exactly why it will never be broken.

Throughout his Hall of Fame career, Hank Aaron managed to rack up 25 All-Star selections. His all-time record in that department has a bit of an asterisk next to it though. Technically, on paper, Aaron was chosen to the All-Star game in every season other than his first and last. Considering that he played 23 seasons, that would mean that Aaron was selected to 21 All-Star games.

Bear with us though, as we break out the pen and paper and work on our math skills.

From 1959-1962, there were two All-Star Games played. The reasoning behind the additional All-Star Game was to raise money for several causes, one being the player’s pension. The whole experiment didn’t last very long but in the process, it allowed Aaron to pile up an additional four more selections.

Unless someone plays at an extremely high level for roughly three decades, or they bring back the multiple All-Star Games, there’s a good chance no one will play long enough and well enough to catch Aaron.
