In 1922, the St. Louis Browns featured the American League stolen base leader and batting champion George Sisler (134 R, 246 H, 42 2B, 18 3B, 105 RBI, 51 SB, .420) and the American League home run and RBI leader Ken Williams (128 R, 194 H, 34 2B, 39 HR 155 RBI, 37 SB, .332). In addition to superstars Sisler and Williams, St. Louis fielded two more 100-RBI men: Marty McManus (189 H, 34 2B, 109 RBI, .312) and Baby Doll Jacobson (22 2B, 16 3B, 102 RBI, .317).
With this ferocious lineup, the Browns ran away from Ty Cobb (99 R, 211 H, 42 2B, 16 3B, 99 RBI, .401) and the Detroit Tigers, as well as Tris Speaker (48 2B, .378) and the Cleveland Indians. On their way to a 93-61 (.604) record, the Browns paced the American League in triples (94), stolen bases (135), and batting average (.313). Featuring a superb pitching staff, anchored by the American League strikeout king Urban Shocker (48 G, 38 GS, 29 CG, 348 IP, 24-17, 149 K, 2.97) and steady Elam Vangilder (43 G, 30 GS, 19 CG, 245 IP, 19-13, 3.42), St. Louis, not coincidentally, led the Junior Circuit in strikeouts (534 K) and earned run average (3.38).
In short, the Browns did everything. Everything except win the pennant.
