MANDAK LEAGUE

Davis retains titleAlthough he didn't complete the season, Lomax "Butch" Davis retained the Manitoba-Dakota Baseball league slugging championship.

The hefty left gardener of the Winnipeg Buffaloes, signed by the St. Louis Browns and farmed out to the Albany club of the New York State league, clouted the ball at a .406 clip for 50 games in which he participated during the 1951 campaign.

Closest rival to Davis for the batting crown was Johnny Washington, Elmwood's first sacker.  He compiled a mark of .359 for 61 contests.

Home (run) slugger was Bob Harvey, Elmwood Giants.  He belted nine four basers during the season with Butch Davis, Ed Souell, Carman, and Wally Jako, Minot, each getting seven.  Davis had the most triples, nine, and Lyman Bostock, Buffaloes, the most doubles, 17.  Sketter (sic) Watkins led the stolen base department with 19, closely followed by Clarence King, a teammate with 18.

Naranjo, Brandon, topped the hurlers with a 4-1 record.  Frank (sic) McKinnis, Brandon, won the most games, eleven as against seven setbacks while Ray Finch, Elmwood Giants' work horse, ended with a 10 and 11 mark.  (Winnipeg Tribune, September 3, 1951)

(The story did not account for players who did not finish the season.  Chick Longest, for example, hit .370 with 8 homers in 154 at bats.)  Also, their list did not show home runs.

 

 Average - Butch Davis WB, .406    
 Home Runs - Bob Harvey EL, 9    
 Runs - Clarence King BR, 67    
 Runs Batted In - Butch Davis WB, 53    
 Doubles - Lyman Bostock WB, 17    
 Triples - Butch Davis WB, 9    
 Stolen Bases - Murray Watkins BR, 19

ATWATER SENIOR LEAGUE, MONTREAL

In a rarity, a hitter from a last-place team has won the batting championship of the 1951 Atwater Senior League. Ray Boutler of Verdun finished with a .370 average to top Graeme Heselton of Mount Royal by eight points. Heselton led the league in hits, with 55. Bill McDonald of St. Henri and Dale Douglas of St. Ann's both hit over .400 but did not have enough at bats to qualify for the batting title.
