  • Percentage triple crown

    Yelich lead his lead in all three major percentages last year. Does anyone want to post a complete list of "percentage triple crown" players (batting average, slugging percentage, on-base percentage)? Also note those who won the MVP award.

    Miguel Cabrera did in 2013, winning the MVP as well
    Joe Mauer did in 2009, won the MVP
    George Brett in 1980, MVP
    Fred Lynn in 1979, but the poor guy was voted just 4th in MVP
    Carl Yastrzemski in 1967, MVP
    Frank Robinson in 1966, MVP
    Ted Williams did in 1941, 1942, 1947, 1948, 1957, and in none of those seasons was he MVP (2nd or 3rd in those seasons)
    Jimmie Foxx in 1938, MVP
    Lou Gehrig in 1934, voted 5th in MVP
    Babe Ruth in 1924, he won MVP the year prior, so I believe he was not eligible in 1924
    Ty Cobb in 1909, 1914, 1917, in 1914 he was voted 14th in MVP voting, no awards in the other years
    Tris Speaker in 1916, no award given
    George Stone in 1906
    Napoelon Lajoie in 1901, 1904

    So that's all I can find from the AL

      This is generally referred to as the "Sabremetric Triple Crown".

            I’ve seen a few combos listed as the Saber TC but none used batting average. I also heard or read about the percentage TC before I saw the term “sabermetric”

                      I've also seen if referred to as the "Modern Triple Crown". I've never heard of the term "percentage Triple Crown", before today.

                        I think I made it up so long ago I thought I heard it somewhere else.

                            I've only ever seen it called the percentage triple crown.
                            "No matter how great you were once upon a time — the years go by, and men forget,” - W. A. Phelon in Baseball Magazine in 1915. “Ross Barnes, forty years ago, was as great as Cobb or Wagner ever dared to be. Had scores been kept then as now, he would have seemed incomparably marvelous.”
