While all of this is incredible there is two major things to discuss about Joe Medwick.
The first was that he was just not a major part of the Cardinals 1934 World Series win but he made history as the first person to be thrown out of a World Series game. Medwick slid into third where the Detroit Tigers Third Baseman, Marvin Owen, dug his foot into Medwick’s leg. The Cardinal responded with a kick to Owen’s gut and Commissioner, Kennesaw Mountain Landis who was in attendance banished him out of the game when he retook the field. As it turned out Medwick and the Cardinals would win the game in a rout and win the World Series that day, but it was certainly history making.
The second is fast-forwarding to 1937 where he won the National League MVP and the Triple Crown. He batted .374 that year with a 1.056 OPS. As of this writing nobody has done that since in the NL. Medwick would be traded to the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1940 when ownership decided that he was not worth the money he was asking for.Medwick would enter the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1968 on his eighth attempt.
