Triple Crown Winners

+ League leaders in HR, RBI and BAVG
  • A list of players who have earned a batting Triple Crown which is a statistical achievement whereby the player leads his league (AL or NL) in Batting Average, Homers and Runs Batted In.
  • The triple crown is a tad controversial among baseball statisticians as it includes 2 statistics that are somewhat related (HR/RBI). Players who lead the league in Homers are generally put in a position to drive in more runs and is not necessarily a separate skillset.
  • There have been 17 instances of a player winning the triple crown. Ted Williams and Rogers Hornsby are the only players to accomplish the feat twice.
