Thats not a stat line like we would see today. The combo of average, and power, with so little Ks would make me belive it would be back in the 50s or earlier before they raised they mound.

If you hadnt thrown the NL MVP kicker in there I would have guessed it to be Ted Williams line, but thats alot triples Fenways short porch. Even given that I would have guessed Ted anyway.

I know Musial was pretty much the Ted Williams of the National league though. Had he not recently dies I would have probably never thought of them though (probably like most people). I think the Cards stadium at the time has pretty big like 350 plus down the lines. making the triples a little easier to manage.

I would have guessed Willie Mays but I dont think he ever hit for that high of an average.

Thats has to pretty much be Musial I think of anyone else.
