MANITOBA SENIOR LEAGUE :

The Brandon Greys easily won the Manitoba Senior League pennant, winning 28 of 32 games, but that was just under a third of the Greys' summer schedule.  The team played 108 games overall, in the MSL, the playoffs, tournaments and exhibitions.  The magical season produced some eye-popping numbers.

Ian Lowe Topped Greys at Plate in Record Season

Ian Lowe, popular playing manager, captured the team batting title for the season with a mark of .336.  Coney Williams finished in second place with .327 and Rafe Cabrera was third with .317.

Cabrera led in the all-important runs-batted-in with 89, two more than Ramon Rodriguez.  Cabrera also led in runs with 129, and home runs with 13.  Williams led in hits with 139 and Bus Vasquez topped the club in triples with 16.  Rodriguez won the stolen bases title by the proverbial country mile and also led in doubles with 33.  (Brandon Sun)

Dirk Gibbons had a sensational season on the mound leading the club in wins, with 19.  He lost just 5 times in completing 20 of his 23 starts.  Gibbons fanned 229 batters in 198 innings pitched.  Winslow Means finished at 18-4 with 17 complete games and Frank Watkins won 17 or 20 decisions with 18 complete games.
