The others are Ted Williams (1997-1999), Joe DiMaggio (1936-38), Mel Ott (1927-29), Willie Mays (1959-61), Barry Bonds (2001-03), and Alex Rodriguez (2002-04).

Did Ty Cobb ever win a World Series?

Cobb, Ty (Detroit Tigers) Most fans believe Ty Cobb earned at least one World Series win throughout his 24-year MLB career, which included approximately 4,200 hits, 12 batting crowns, and two seasons hitting over. Cobb appeared in three World Series in a row from 1907 to 1909, but the Tigers lost all three, and Cobb averaged just over.500 during these seasons.

In fact, it's very likely that Cobb won multiple World Series titles without most people knowing it. In 1910, when asked if he had any comment about rumors of a batting champion, Cobb said: "I don't pay any attention to them. I've never been able to understand why people get so interested in baseball statistics."

This means that if we look only at the batting champions listed in Baseball-Reference.com's history pages (which is the only source some people use to claim that nobody has won more than one batting title), then Cobb is the winner of at least three more rings. The only thing stopping us from making this claim are a few things about the deadball era: first, that there was no formalized award for batting champ until 1914; second, that many people believed that Cobb's wife Mae supported their family by working as a clerk in a store (she actually worked as an office assistant for a doctor); and third, that Cobb used illegal pitches to destroy the careers of other players (including Oscar Stanfill, who once said of him: "I'd like to see him hit one now").
