In 2012, a decade ago, Miguel Cabrera won the Triple Crown. It was quite a feat, as he was the first batter to win a Triple Crown since Carl Yastrzemski in 1967.

Miggy was also the first non-outfielder to win the Triple Crown since Lou Gehrig in 1934 and the first player to snag it without a tie in the three categories since Frank Robinson in 1966. He was also the first Latin American player to win a Triple Crown.
