* The total bases column has been left blank as so few of the calculations were shown to be accurate.
(a) The extra base numbers for Donovan and White, for example, are in error (both began the season
with doubles on opening day)
(b) White's line is the most obvious error. He is listed with just two hits, but 11 extra base hits
(c) In Foster's case, the likely error is a simple typo, a transposing of the G & AB numbers
(d) There are eight players with differences of more than a point between the numbers published
and the averages resulting from the at bats and hits shown.  Collins had a .294 published mark
but his at bats and hits would bring a .298 average. Walsh is at .291, but would have finished
at .289 if the at bat and hit figures are correct.  Bell is shown at .221, but the calculation
should have been .235. McQuarrie .188-.159; Brennan .185-.189; Glocknor .152-.156; Sullivan
.127-.129, and Foster .055-.250.
