SASKATOON CITY LEAGUE

Veteran campaigner Maurice Leonard "Bunny" Clouston socked old Spalding at a .413 clip this season to capture the batting title in the Saskatoon City League.  The Elks playing-manager piloted the Elks to their first pennant. Clouston notched hits in 17 of his 20 games to top Webb Bird, the 1925 champion, by 50 points. Ted Graham of the North Stars, who finished with an impressive .412 mark, was deemed not to have played enough games to qualify for the batting crown.  Roy Forsythe of the railway nine came third with a .330 average. Forsythe was the league's top slugger, finishing one behind the leader in doubles, tied for the lead in triples and home runs. He also tied for the lead in stolen bases.

Merril Falby of the Elks was the league's top hurler winning eight of nine decisions. Teammate Frank Lyle was second in wins, with six, and compiled the most strikeouts, 92. Ossie Jones of the CNR appeared in the most games, 13.

VANCOUVER TERMINAL LEAGUE 

Glen Hope of the Ex-King George nine has been crowned batting champion of the 1926 Terminal League. Right fielder Hope compiled a .429 average in 18 games to top Tom Miyata of the Asahis who finished with a .393 mark. Miller and Harry Wilson of Mount Pleasant had better figures than Hope but did not have enough participation to qualify for the title. Pat Worley of the Mount Pleasant squad finished third, hitting at a .388 clip.  The Asahis Roy Yamamura, fourth with a .367 batting mark, led the league in runs, 35, hits, 33, and stolen bases, 37. 

The Asahis led the loop with a team batting average of .351 and with 160 stolen bases in 28 games (nearly six per game) , had more than double the number of steals as the next best team.
