Carl Yastrzemski Miguel Cabrera
Carl Yastrzemski and Miguel Cabrera, the last hitters to win the Triple Crown
If one player leads his league in homeruns, runs batted in (RBI), and batting average, he wins the Triple Crown. Miguel Cabrera earned the honour in 2012; prior to that, no one had earned it since Carl Yastrzemski in 1967.
