How not to make the all star team.

Only 6 pitchers have hit Craig Biggio before the all star break and still made the all star team in the same year. Greg Maddux ('94), Shawn Estes ('97), Pedro Martinez ('97), Kevin Brown ('00), Danny Graves ('00), and Ben Sheets ('01).

119 other pitchers have failed to make the all star team after plunking Biggio. If the league's pitchers were aware of this, maybe they wouldn't have drilled Biggio 153 times before the all star break. Then again, maybe they'd just rather hit him.
