1. Which of the following players never appeared in the All-Star Game?

Although one of baseball’s all-time greats, Ty Cobb never played in an All-Star Game simply because there was none during his career, which ended in 1928. The All-Star Game wasn’t introduced until 1933, when Chicago Tribune sports editor Arch Ward had the idea to bring the best players together for what was supposed to be a one-time spectacle held in conjunction with that year’s World’s Fair in Chicago, called the Century of Progress International Exposition.
