data(AllstarFull)

# find number of appearances by players in the All Star games
player_appearances <- with(AllstarFull, rev(sort(table(playerID))))

# How many All-Star players, in total?
length(player_appearances)

# density plot of the whole distribution
plot(density(player_appearances), main="Player appearances in All Star Games")
rug(jitter(player_appearances))

# who has played in more than 10 ASGs?
player_appearances[player_appearances > 10]
hist(player_appearances[player_appearances > 10])


# Hank Aaron's All-Star record:
subset(AllstarFull, playerID == "aaronha01")

# Years that Stan Musial played in the ASG:

# Starting positions he played (NA means did not start)
with(AllstarFull, startingPos[playerID == "musiast01"])

# All-Star rosters from the 1966 ASG
