Two Things You Might Not Have Known, Baseball Edition

I enjoy the occasional random factoid, so it is my pleasure to pass along a couple that I learned today. Did you know...

1. Robin Yount won as many MVPs in his career as Ted Williams and Willie Mays did?

2. Over the course of their franchise histories, the Milwaukee Brewers and the Cleveland Indians have won the same number of MVPs with 3. The Indians were a charter member of the American League. The Brewers are less than 40 years old. If Prince Fielder were to win the NL MVP this year, something that seems unlikely at this point, then the Brewers will move into an MVP award tie with another charter member of the American League, the Chicago White Sox.
