Best Answer

The "Triple Crown" is an award that is given to the player in either league with the highest batting average, the most r.b.i.'s, and of course, the most home runs. To achieve this award a single player must have all three. Until Miguel Cabrera won this award this year in 2012, the last time was 1967.
