EDMONTON SENIOR LEAGUE

Pete McCready of the Alberta champion Edmonton Cubs was the batting star of the 1933 Edmonton Senior League as he led the circuit in batting average, runs scored, runs batted in and home runs.  The slugging centrefielder hit .345 with five homers and 12 RBI. Teammate Phil Horn was the runner-up with a .333 mark.  The Shastas Val Berg actually topped McCready by hitting for a .349 average, but failed to play two-thirds of his teams`s games to enable him to qualify.  Horn topped the league in steals, with 13.
