Grandpa Roy Question

Hey guys, Drew back here. After many posts today I will finish with our next question. I also changed the image on the top of the blog, showing newer packs, not from last year. It's more bland but I like looking at new packs. Also I just bought 2 things on eBay tonight, one thanks to Paul from Carl Crawford Cards, a 30 card lot of the 1994 Classic Capitol City Bombers Minor League Team set, which includes a card of my former teacher, Al Hammell. The second thing was a 50 card lot of Nick Swisher, hopefully good stuff, the guy's picture was of a sample pack! Anyway, here's tonights question:

The Triple Crown is a very rare event in baseball. Not many people get to cherish the position, but a few cherished it for a long time. There are 4 players in MLB history who had led their league (American/National) in batting average, home runs, and runs batted in (Triple Crown) in a single decade. One of them is Albert Pujols, who has led the National League in batting average, homers, and rbi's in the 2000's decade. Name the other 3!

1: Albert Pujols, 2000-2009
2. Rogers Hornsby, 1920-1929: Spastik Moose
3. Ted Williams, 1940-1949: Dan (The Other World)


As always, please don't cheat, and remember these points are added to your points on the scoreboard, top 5 people with the most points win a prize at the end of the year. No using baseball refrence or almanac as it just is a way of cheating. And don't name more than 1 at a time unless us collectors need help with the question. Thanks and good luck!


  1. Hmm. I'm going to say...Rogers Hornsby. I was gonna say Ted Williams but the war probably hurt his chances in counting stats.

  2. I'll say Lou Gehrig and Willie Mays.

  3. I would guess Lou Gehrig, Hank Aaron, Willie Mays... Good question.

  4. I'm still going to guess Ted many Triple Crowns did he win or come close to winning in the '40s?

  5. Hint: mmosely, you might have the right team!
