MANITOBA SENIOR AMATEUR LEAGUE 

In the closest and most exciting batting race ever by Wesley Park baseballers, Ward McVey of the Tammany Tigers finished strong to edge defending batting champ Jim McCullough of the Transconas by a single point - .342 to .341. A late slump, one hit in his last ten at bats, cost McCullough the crown. Tiger first sacker Johnston was third, at .329. Eddie Cass, the Clubbers' first baseman was fifth with a .327 average and led the league in runs, hits and total bases. McCullough was tops in stolen bases, with 14.
