Who was the only player in baseball to win a triple crown in both American league and National league?

A player is said to win the Triple Crown in a given season if he leads his league in batting average, home runs and RBIs. No player has won the Triple Crown in both leagues. The only players to win the Triple Crown more than once were Rogers Hornsby, who won the NL Triple Crown in 1922 and 1925, and Ted Williams, who won the AL Triple Crown in 1942 and 1947. Some people recognize a pitching "Triple Crown" (league leader in wins, ERA and strikeouts), but no player has won that in both leagues either. However, two pitchers with the same last name have won, one in each league: Walter Johnson in the American League in 1913, 1918 and 1924, and Randy Johnson in the National League in 2002.
