It's been pointed out that if Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera and Giants catcher Buster Posey win the American and National League Most Valuable Player Awards, respectively -- the results of the voting by 10-year members of the Baseball Writers' Association of America won't be announced until December -- this will be the first time the MVPs of their respective leagues have met in the World Series since 1988. But how about this? Cabrera and Posey both won batting titles this season, which makes it the first time batting average leaders have faced off since 1954: Willie Mays (.345) for the New York Giants and Bobby Avila (.341) for the Indians.
