The last time a triple crown trophy was to Yaz back in 67. What he won and every player who won before him was this

Should it be the same trophy, maybe improve it alittle, or should they go with something else, since it has been 45 years?

I don't really care. I mean, only a fraction of a fraction of great players have won that award, so I guess it could be made of Aluminum and it would still be valuable.

And it is the triple crown, so shouldn't it still be...a crown?

Give him a candle, a diet coke and some chap stick.

What? Shouldn't three random stats be rewarded with three random items?

Yaz had Yaz bread... The Impossible Dream song from Man of La Mancha was lifted for him, and a LP record of the season made featuring Yaz. Yaz was a hero from game 3 of the season when he saved Billy Rohr's no hitter off a Tom Tresh drive with 2 outs in the 7th, to his final incendiary 15 games (27 for 55 - .491 with 11 Xbh) in the greatest pennant battle of all time - last 43 games of the year the Sox were +/- 1.5 games of 1st place - with 3 other teams as close.

And how's Miggy doing in the WS BTW? After two games Miggy is at .200/.429/.200

The Sox lost the WS in 7 games in '67 but Yaz hit .400/.500/.840.

Yaz's crown is about 2 feet tall in that pic, Cabrera's? Let's just say a magnitude smaller would about do it.

Do they not give a similar trophy to pitchers who win?

The fact that its literally a crown is totally badass.

The ones from Burger King are still more badass.

Sorry, I had to. But yeah it's a pretty cool thing they actually give a crown.
