Triple Crown Winners - Pitchers

 

   "A pitcher is not a ballplayer."

- Christy Mathewson

   The Triple Crown is accomplished by pitchers who lead the league in wins, ERA and strikeouts. The feat is not as difficult to achieve as it is for hitters, since the pitching categories are substantially more correlated than the hitting categories.
