After Cabrera’s Triple Crown, What Huge Baseball Feat Will Happen Next? — Sports Survey of the Day

On Wednesday it became official: Miguel Cabrera is the first player to win baseball’s Triple Crown since Carl Yastrzemski in 1967. Cabrera finished with a .330 batting average, 44 home runs and 139 RBIs, also leading his Detroit Tigers to the American League Central Division championship. Congratulations to Cabrera—anytime achievement that hasn’t been done in 45 years deserves applause. So what comes next: a pitcher winning 30 games, a 57-game hitting streak or a .400 average? Those three feats have also gone quite some time without being done (except for the hitting streak, which obviously never has). Denny McLain (also of the Tigers) was the last pitcher to hit the 30-win mark, back in 1968. Joe Dimaggio’s famous 56-game hitting streak was in 1941, the same year Ted Williams hit .406, the last time a hitter broke the .400 barrier.
