SASKATCHEWAN LEAGUE :

Wills batting champion(Regina Leader-Post, 04 Sept, 1954)

Ted Wills, pitcher-outfielder with Saskatoon Gems, is the 1954 Saskatchewan Baseball League batting champion, according to statistics released by league headquarters Friday.

Wills, who appeared in 40 games, cracked out 46 hits in 137 times at bat for a .336 average. Collins Jones, Moose Jaw Mallards' left fielder, wound up five percentage points behind Wills with 80 hits in 242 times at bat. Jones took part of 56 of the Moose Jaw club's 60 league contests.

Jones batted in the most runs, 46, and hit the most doubles, 19. Gems' Percy Trimont won home run honours with 11 circuit blasts to his credit and also hit the most triples, nine. Trimont was the league's most walked batter, drawing 60 bases on balls in the 56 games in which he played.

Mario Herrera of Saskatoon stole 24 bases for top honours in that department. Jose Valladares, who started out with Indian Head Rockets and switched to Saskatoon, was next in line with 21.

Rockets' Sergio Fabre captured pitching laurels, posting 10 victories without a loss. Don Kirk of Saskatoon was next in line at 11-1. [Analysis of game reports turned up just 10 wins for Kirk.] Max Weekly, Lloydminster Meridians' southpaw, compiled the most strikeouts, 103.

The Moose Jaw club had the best team batting average, .276, four points better than Saskatoon. Gems had the best fielding club with a percentage of .995. North Battleford Beavers were second with .946 and Moose Jaw third with .930.

MANDAK LEAGUE :

Former major league outfielder Roy Weatherly of Williston Oilers won the 1954 ManDak League batting crown with a .412 mark.  Sugar Cain of Minot had a higher average but did not have enough appearances to qualify.  Joe Massaro of Minot had the most hits with 92 and led in runs batted in with 66.  Lloyd Gearhart of Williston blasted 17 home runs to set a ManDak League record, four more than the 13 hit by Pete Hughes in 1953.Connie Juelke of Minot had the most triples, 8, and Bill Cleveland of the Oilers led in doubles, with 23. 

The newspaper article did not list pitching statistics other than in the body of the story which noted:

"In the pitching department Sugar Cain of the Mallards finished the year with an 11-1 won-lost record although he dropped his only two starts in the playoffs. Cain was followed by team mates Neil Lettau and Billy Washburn with 13-2 and 7-2 marks respectively and Harry Taylor of Williston had 9-4.

Rod MacKay was the top Brandon hurler with four wins and two losses for a .667 percentage while Dirk Gibbons had 11-7 for .611, Dan Ahtipis 10-7, Ralph Rose 7-5, Mort Wright 3-4 and Leon Day 0-2.  Morley Macfarlane of the Greys was the only pitcher in the league with a perfect record, but the Brandon youth hurled only one game.

Cain was tops in the strike out department with 98 while Ahtipis, who led in walks with 80, was second with 77. Gibbons worked the most innings, 154 2/3 and gave up the most hits, 177. (From the Brandon Sun, 1954)
