1916 Statistics

VANCOUVER COMMERCIAL LEAGUE

Ralph Dawson, all-round star of Arnold and Quigley, carried off the batting honours in the Commercial League with a mark of .451 winning the Harry Haywood medal which goes to the champion batsman. Armstrong of Snider and Brethour was the runner-up with a .392 average. Dawson had the most hits, 23 and hit for the most extra bases, 18.  Harley Solloway and Bullard, both of Nationasl Biscuits, shared the lead in runs, each with 14. Jardine of Snider and Brethour was the leading base stealer with 16.

Ira Brethour of the Snider and Brethour squad led the hurlers although he was reinstated only during the last month of the season. The left-hander won four of five decisions with three of the victories one-hit shutouts. He allowed just seven runs in five starts and one brief relief appearance and fanned 40 in his 35 innings of work. Camille "Lefty" Delcourt of the Malkins was the ironman working in 78 innings with 107 strikeouts and just 18 free passes. Ed/Bob Biddle won his only two starts and racked up 27 strikeouts in 16 innings.
