from those computed from the at bats and hits. Morse, was shown at .344, not .300 which
his actual numbers produce. Harper's at bats and hits would give a .238 average, not the
.283 which was published. The differences for Hillman and Henry were minor. Source : Reach Official American League Guide 1915 Games : Buckles MH - 44 Wins : Buckles MH - 25 Won-Lost Pct : Beer SK, 23-7 - .767 Innings : Buckles MH - 331 Strikeouts : Buckes MH - 196
