By Charlie Schick
South Jersey Baseball Historical Society

In our task to try to select the best Riverside High School baseball players and coach of the 20th century, we found our assignment to be no easy matter. A number of road blocks faced the selection of the Rams' elite team, as varied levels of competition and the aluminum bat introduction were just a few of the conditions that had to be weighed. These factors plus other intangibles made the comparison of player achievements over the years difficult at best.

Winning Baseball's Triple Crown Is The Rarest Of Honors

Sunday, May 23, 1999

By Charlie Schick
South Jersey Baseball Historical Society

Over the years there have been hundreds of batting champions, as well as, home run and RBI kings that have been crowned throughout baseball history. But when it comes to accomplishing the Triple Crown (leading your respective league in batting average, home runs, and RBI's) that's another story. In fact, since the beginning of the 20th century, major league baseball has experienced a Triple Crown winner only 14 times. Even more limiting is the fact that only 12 major league players have ever claimed the award in that time period, since two Hall of Fame members Roger Hornsby, and Ted Williams have turned the rarest of baseball's offensive honors.twice.

Larson, New York Yankees lanky right-hander, hurled his gem on October 8th, and required only 97 pitches to shut down a hard-hitting Brooklyn Dodger squad.
