VANCOUVER CITY LEAGUE   

Baden "Babe" Esplen, the unluckiest pitcher in the City Baseball League this season is the circuit's batting champion according to official averages released by the league.  Esplen, who suffered seven pitching losses, mainly through poor fielding, rang up a .351 average to edge Grauer and Bell, both of the Reginas, who tied for second with .345 marks.  Esplen also led the league in doubles, with six.  Boe of the Vancouver Sun scored the most runs, 17, while Crowe of the Province topped the loop in hits with 15.  Stewart of the Sun cracked three homers to lead in that category.  Esplen led the hurlers in strikeouts, with 61.
