Baseball Hall of Immortals – Inductee #39: Jimmie Foxx

The first 3 time MVP award winner, Jimmie Foxx was an offensive force for first the Philadelphia Athletics and then the Boston Red Sox for almost 20 seasons.  Over the course of his career, Double X put together 12 30 homerun seasons (when that meant something), 13 100-RBI seasons, and 9 seasons of at least a .330 batting average.

By the time his career was done, Foxx had hit 534 homeruns – second only to Babe Ruth at the time (and most among right-handers).  He had also driven in over 1,900 runs, compiled a .325 lifetime batting average, and won the AL Triple Crown in 1933.

For his amazing prowess at the plate, Jimmie Foxx is definitely an Immortal.
