The triple crown is perhaps the top single season achievement in baseball. Few hitters in Major League Baseball history have won it, leading the league in batting average, home runs and runs batted in. Included among that group were Joe Medwick of the St. Louis Cardinals in 1937 when he batted .374 with 31 home runs and 154 RBIs.
Here is today’s question: Who are the only major league players to win the triple crown twice.
Yesterday’s answer: The five local high school golfers to win state titles since 1990 are Phil Caravia, of Belleville West in 1995; Tim Riley, of Althoff in 1996; Girls: Jill Gomric, of Althoff in 1994; Mary Ellen Jacobs, of Alton Marquette in (2002) and Ashley Freeman, of Belleville East in 2003.
