1935 Statistics

SOUTHERN LEAGUE 

We've been unable to find any official statistics, either batting or pitching, for the 1935 Southern League season. Regina Leader-Post scribe Dave Dryburgh indicated in his column of August 29, 1935 that Regina Windsors' outfielder Cliff Hogg was the loop's leading hitter for 1935. From box scores we've been able to compile Hogg's batting statistics for the season.  He finished with an impressive .430 average in 23 games, with six doubles, 4 triples and one home run.  It was his second consecutive batting title.

"Lefty" Steiner of the Regina Windsors was the top hurler in the loop, winning 12 of his 15 decisions. He topped the league in wins, winning percentage, games pitched and tied for the lead in games started, with 15. John Berner of Estevan Elks had a 10-4 won-lost record.  Ralph Hogg of Weyburn had the most complete games, 15.

VANCOUVER TERMINAL LEAGUE 

IOCO backstop Ralph Spicer, with a .407 average, has won the batting title in the Vancouver Terminal League for the 1935 season.  Spicer was an easy winner over Fred Tinling of Shore's who finished second with a .377 mark. Kaz Suga of the Asahis rapped the ball at a .409 clip but had just 22 at bats, not enough to qualify for the batting crown. Tinling, who played in eight more games than Spicer, led the circuit in hits, collecting 49.  Scotty Knox, of IOCO, had the most runs, 30. Eddie Davis, also of the Imperials, who won the title last year, finished the season with a .352 average good for third place. Frank Shiraishi of the Asahis was the top slugger collecting 63 total bases. Tinling, the Shore's catcher, had a 28-game hitting streak to end the season.
