NORTHERN SASKATCHEWAN LEAGUE

Delisle outfielder Dick Butler captured the batting crown of the 1950 Northern Saskatchewan League, besting Cy Rouse of the Saskatoon Cubs by 4-percentage points, .365 to .361. 

Actually, Curtis Tate of the North Battleford Beavers had an average higher than Butler's and Paul Hrynkiw of the Colonsay Monarchs finished with exactly the same average as the Gems' fly shagger. However, neither Tate nor Hrynkiw participated in a sufficient number of league games to qualify for the batting championship.

Bob Herron of North Battleford, one of the leading hitters, was the league's top pitcher, topping the circuit with 8 wins and leading in games, games started and complete games.  Bennie Griggs of Delisle had the best percentage with five wins and no losses.

 MANDAK LEAGUE

Davis, batting champLomax "Butch" Davis of the Winnipeg Buffaloes ran away with the batting championship in the inaugural season of the ManDak League with a final average of .456. 

The Buffaloes outfielder finished well ahead of Brandon's Rafe Cabrera, who finished second at .374.  Cabrera won the home run title, with six long ones while teammate Ian Lowe, the playing-manager of the Greys, knocked in the most runs, 39.  Davis was second in RBI, with 38, second in homers, with four, while his 18 stolen bases topped the circuit. 

Brandon's Art Hunt won nine straight without a loss to lead the pitchers. Gentry Jessup of Carman also won 9. [The Winnipeg Free Press report showed Jessup with a 10-4 record, but an analysis of game reports showed Jessup with just nine wins.]

(1) With the hits & at bats shown, Lillis should have been credited with a .410 average. 
Bradish was shown with 147 at bats, but with a .247 average, not .293 as would have 
resulted with his 43 hits. Quite likely a typo, 174 ABs, not 147.

COMOX DISTRICT BASEBALL LEAGUE

Players of the champion Courtenay Legion dominated the final statistics in the Comox District League.  Earl Woods edged out teammate Freddie Orr for the batting title, .407 to .405, while Orr led the loop in hits, with 34.  Jack Younger of the Cumberland Cubs was third with a .367 average and D.Cameron of Campbell River followed with a .360 mark. Charlie Boyd of the Cubs rounded out the top five hitting .338.  While no final pitching statistics were published, Bob McIvor of the Legion is believed to have produced eight straight wins without a loss.
