Joey Votto is undoubtedly one of the best first basemen the MLB has seen since his debut in 2007. Over the course of his career, Votto has an amazing .313 batting average, over 260 home runs, over 800 RBI, and an on-base percentage of .428, the highest career mark for any active player. But, over the course of his career, he has been oddly absent from the Mid-Summer Classic, the MLB All-Star Game. He’s only appeared in the ASG 5 times over the course of his career, only appearing in one since 2014.
