etroit Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera won baseball's Triple Crown, making him only the 15th player ever to end the season with his league's best batting average (.330), number of home runs (44), and RBIs (139). The last player to achieve this trifecta was the Boston Red Sox's Carl Yastrzemski in 1967. Cabrera joins baseball greats Mickey Mantle, Lou Gehrig, Ty Cobb, and Ted Williams in the exclusive Triple Crown club; other legends, like Joe DiMaggio, Babe Ruth, Hank Aaron, and Roberto Clemente, never swept all three categories in the same year. "It's an unbelievable feeling," Cabrera said.
