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.

SOUTHERN MINNESOTA LEAGUE

Whitey Brinsky the slugging outfielder of the Mankato Merchants paced Southern Minnesota hitters during the 1951 season with a .385 average. Brinsky, who set a league record with 23 home runs and topped the circuit in runs batted in, with 56, had 62 hits in winning the batting crown.  George Sprys, the Albert Lea outfielder, was the runner-up with a .369 percentage. Babe Jensen, also of the Packers, had a .433 average, but did not play in enough games to qualify for the title. Jim O'Brien, Owatonna's fleet centre fielder, got the most hits, 64.

Carl DeRose of the Austin Packers was the top hurler with 17 wins in 22 decisions.
