 Joe Medwick on Wikipedia. Medwick (1911-1975) was part of the St. Louis Cardinals' "Gashouse Gang" during the 1930's, being part of the team's successful 1934 season. In 1937, he was named the National League's Most Valuable Player, batting champion and home run leader. As of 2020, Medwick was the most recent National Leaguer to win the Triple Crown award. He was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1968, and the St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Fame in 2014 (inaugural class). (Submitted on October 29, 2020, by Jason Voigt of Glen Carbon, Illinois.)
