The baseball pitching triple crown and horse racing triple crown were both won in 1930 and 1937. In 1930, Lefty Grove of the Philadelphia Athletics won in baseball and Gallant Fox won in horse racing and, in 1937, Lefty Gomez of the New York Yankees won in baseball and War Admiral won in horse racing.
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.
There have been 14 players that have won the Triple Crown in hitting with two players dong it twice. The last to do it was Carl Yastrzemski in 1967 when he hit 326, 44 HR, 121 RBI.
