That is an excellent question. As far as I know, history has not recorded the person that came up with the idea. But if I had to guess, it was probably invented at the same time that the hitter's Triple Crown was invented. If anyone out there can give a more concise answer, please do! I would like to know this myself!

The stats used to determine the Triple Crown of Pitching are wins, strikeouts, and earned run average or ERA. The first American League pitcher to win the Triple Crown of Pitching was Cy Young in 1901. The first pitcher to win it in the National League was Tommy Bond in 1877.

The "Triple Crown" is an award that is given to the player in either league with the highest batting average, the most r.b.i.'s, and of course, the most home runs. To achieve this award a single player must have all three. Until Miguel Cabrera won this award this year in 2012, the last time was 1967.

A triple crown winner is one who wins the batting average title, the runs batted in title and the home run title all in one season. The last triple crown winner was Carl Yastrzemski in 1967. A Triple play occurs in baseball when a team records three outs on a single play. The last triple play was Troy Tulowitzki's unassisted triple play on April 29, 2007. Pitchers also have a triple crown. A triple crown pitching winner leads the league in wins, strikeouts, and ERA.

Hitting - Lead your lead in batting average, home runs and RBI. Pitching - Lead your league in wins, ERA and strikeouts. Carl Yastrzemski won the last hitting triple crown in 1967 with the Red Sox, recording a .326 average, 44 HR and 121 RBI. Jake Peavy won the last pitching triple crown in 2007 with the Padres, getting 19 wins, 240 strikeouts and an ERA of 2.54.
