KC Royals: Anniversary of George Brett’s 3rd batting title

In October of 1990, I was in my first month of high school, songs by Nelson, Phil Collins and Bell Biv DeVoe were at the top of the charts. Ghost, Goodfellas, and Marked for Death were box office hits. On the 3rd day of that month, George Brett was wrapping up his third and final batting title for the KC Royals. The 2020 season is the 30th anniversary of this historic accomplishment.

Several players have won more titles overall than Brett including those you would expect like Tony Gwynn, Ty Cobb, Rod Carew, and Ted Williams.
