But did you see this last night? Ryan Howard apparently (pending MRI results) tore his ACL on the final play of the game, crumbling to the ground as the Cardinals rushed the field to celebrate their NLDS victory. I cannot recall any team's season ever ending with a serious injury to a player. What a terrible shame for Howard and the Phillies--if indeed the injury is serious, it's tough to imagine him being ready for spring training in 2012. [...]

Gabby Hartnett is the other, in 1924 and 1934.

Yes, Pujols is the first at .299 with 99 RBI.

Closest to him is Goose Goslin in 1923. He hit .300 on the nose - 180 hits in 600 AB.

It's a double-milestone-whammy.

I suppose as a curiosity a good post might be about the multiple 99 ribbie guys, .299 avgs, etc.

I'm trying to find the video to confirm my suspicion.
