    Ian is correct as it was Elston Howard, who came up in 1955 with Yanks as an OF who years later convert to catching as Yogi got too old to catch everyday. Ellie was aways known for getting
    the clutch hit, he was twice awarded Babe Ruth award for WS MVP. He was on WS winning teams as a player in the 50's & 60's and then was a coach for their two WS rings in the 70's.
    In 1961 he batted .348 and lost the batting title to Norm Cash .361, but in 1963 Elston have another great year with clutch hitting with a BA only .287 enough to win the league MVP.
    Howard is also the person that came up with the weighed ring they use on your bat on dry swing known as the DONUT.

    Can you name this MVP?

    This 9x AS was a runner-up for the batting title one year, then two years later his batting average was 61 points lower but was good enough to capture the league MVP award that year.
    Can you name him?
