Some of the names on the MLB All-Star rosters in both leagues are amazing. Some names that aren’t on the rosters are even more staggering. Here are some stats to chew on that can help ease the pain of your favorite player getting snubbed.
1.000: Kevin Youkilis’ OPS in 2010, fourth in the AL heading into Monday’s game. Youkilis was left off the AL All-Star roster, although he may make the team in the final vote.
51: Number of hits that Braves utility man Omar Infante has in 2010. Infante, who was named to the NL All-Star team on Sunday, ranks 104th in the NL in hits and eighth on Atlanta’s team.
477.75: Total number of hot dogs that Takeru Kobayashi ate from 2001 to 2009 at the Nathan’s Annual Hot Dog Eating Contest. The Japanese competitive eater did not compete in 2010 due to a contract dispute with Major League Eating and was arrested at the contest for climbing onto the stage.
596: Amount of consecutive sellouts for Red Sox games at Fenway Park, thanks to the 37,742 fans that showed up to Sunday’s game against the Orioles.
4245: Combined number of NFL passing attempts that Patriots quarterbacks Tom Brady, Brian Hoyer, and Zac Robinson have in their careers. Brady has all but 27 of them (Hoyer has the rest).
