The worst hitter in baseball history...and its not Izzy!

Bill Bergen's pretty famous for being the worst hitter of all time. Of all the unbreakable records, his 1909 season where he had a .319 OPS in 372 PAs is pretty close to untouchable. He hit .139 with one double, one triple, one homer and 10 walks in 111 games. That was a low-scoring, no-power era, but among players who appeared in 100 or more games he was 180 OPS points behind the 2nd-worst hitter of '09.

Bergen's brother Marty was also a major league player, but is infamous for killing his immediate family and himself after a long battle with what we'd now probably call paranoid schizophrenia.
