His .331 career batting average stands 30th.He received MVP votes in 18 seasons, finishing as the runner-up four times after winning his third award in 1948. He was second in the balloting in 1957, when at age 36, he won the NL batting title for the final time.He won his seventh title — only Ty Cobb (11), Honus Wagner and Tony Gwynn (eight each) won more — 14 years after his first.
