Boston MVPs through the years
Ted Williams won two MVPs, in 1946 and 1949. From 1941 to 1949, Williams led the league in OBP, slugging, and OPS. He hit 43 home runs and drove in 159 in 1949, both career highs. In 1946 and 1949, Williams scored 142 and 150 runs respectively and led the league in both years. Williams, who finished second in the voting four times, is widely regarded as having been robbed of the award in 1947 when he won the Triple Crown, but lost the award to the Yankees' Joe DiMaggio by one vote.
