In 1967 ‘Yaz’ had an amazing Triple Crown season in which he dominated the American League in the most important offensive categories. A true superstar, ‘Yaz’ took his game to the next level when he hit .326, 44 home runs, and drove in 121 runs. While not ‘Triple Crown’ stats, he also led the AL in runs scored, hits, on-base percentage, and total bases.
