Of all MLB players who have made the all-star team at least twice, who has the lowest career WAR?
Is there a way to answer this question with baseball-reference or mlb savant? Or do you have to write some SQL?

Worst hitters with at least two All-Star appearances

I'm assuming you don't want the pitcher's WAR for hitting included in this list. I excluded pitchers from the batting war by setting a requirement of 15% in any non-pitching position. Blue Moon Odom (a pitcher) still sneaks into this list, because he was frequently used a pinch runner. I didn't want to filter out any other legit hitters who were used as a pinch runner in their career.

I don't know why stathead is not including the All-Star appearance in their final table.
For the pitchers, I had to set a minimum innings pitched of 150 innings. Otherwise, you'd get guys like Jose Canseco in there who pitched a couple innnigs. Why 150 innings? There's a Yankee outfielder, Ben Chapman, who was a 3x All-Star in the 1930s. In his career he pitched 141 innings.
