Robinson Cano of the New York Yankees experienced one of the worst postseasons ever, particularly for a player with his credentials.

Cano is a four-time All-Star and a career .308 hitter through his first eight seasons in the major leagues. In 2012, Cano posted a triple-slash line of .313/.379/.550 with a career-high 33 home runs and 94 RBI. His on-base and slugging percentages were also career bests.

But in the playoffs, Cano set a postseason record with 29 straight hitless at-bats on his way to a 3-for-40 (.075) showing in the Yankees’ nine postseason games in 2012. He did have four RBI in the Division Series five-game win over the Baltimore Orioles despite going 2-for-22. But in the American League Championship Series against the Detroit Tigers, Cano mustered just one hit in 18 at-bats as New York was swept.

Here are 60 of the worst postseason hitting performances of all-time, broken into the three era of posts-season play (the one-round era from 1903-1968, the two-round era from 1969-1980 and 1982-1993, and the three-round era of 1981 and 1995-2012).
