Bergmann was 0 for 40 on the season although he did have two sacrifices. Bergmann struck out 20 times on the season.
The previous record in this category was 35 at bats by Hal Finney of the 1936 Pirates. Finney was a catcher and he somehow managed to drive in 3 runs and score 3 times, although he does not have any sacrifices on his record. Sacrifice flies were not a statistic at the time.
