He batted over .300 nine times and topped American League third basemen in fielding percentage seven times, utilizing a strong and accurate throwing arm to lead the league in assists four times and in putouts and double plays twice each. In 1949, Kell dramatically captured the American League batting title when he edged out Ted Williams by less than two ten-thousandths of a point, .34291 to .34276. His 13 strikeouts in 1949 is the lowest total for a batting champion in big league history. Fine condition.
