J.D. Martinez has a chance to make Major League history over the final month of the season.

Martinez could finish the season as baseball's overall leader in batting average, home runs and RBI. The last player to lead Major League Baseball in all three categories was Mickey Mantle in 1956.

An American League or National League triple crown is rare as well. It has been achieved just 16 times since the RBI became an official statistic in 1920.

Through Thursday's action, Martinez ranked second in batting average (.330), tied for first in home runs (41) and first in RBI (122).
