SOUTHERN ALBERTA LEAGUE :

Granum's Brack Bailey was the runner-up with a .378 average and he tied with Frank Amaya of Lethbridge for the lead in triples, each with 5.  Amaya finished fourth in batting with a .358 average, just behind Ed Fallon of Vauxhall.

Sam Canner of the Lethbridge Warriors registered the most wins, 9,  Bob Bolingbroke of Medicine Hat had the best winning percentage, .778, winning 7 of 9 decisions.  Mel Hubbard of Medicine Hat was tops in strikeouts with 119.

BASIN LEAGUE :

(Coverage from The HURONITE and THE DAILY PLAINSMAN, Huron, S.D., Tuesday, August 26, 1958)

Ranson Records .418 Mark; Thies Second in E.R.A.; Third in Whiffs

MITCHELL -- Jim Ranson of the Valentine Hears was the only Basin League player to finish the season with a batting average higher than .400 as he wound up knocking the ball at a .418 clip for the season, according to official league statistics.

Ranson's closest competitor was teammate John Feldman who had a .376 average for the season.  Two Pierre players, John Herrnstein and Ted Schrieber finished the season with a rush and wound up with .355 and .361 respectively.

A three-way tie developed for the doubles honor. Ted Schrieber, Pierre, Hank Paskiewicz of Rapid City and Billy Wells of Valentine tied for the doubles lead with 15 each.

Wells also finished ahead of the field in the runs batted in department with a total of 51.

Don Betzen of Valentine was the winningest hurler in the league as he compiled a 8-2 mark for the season.

Dick Radatz of Watertown had 107 strikeouts to lead the league.  Frank Carpin of Mitchell was second with 95.

Dick Wiegand of Rapid City led the pitchers in the earned run averages with a 2.19 average for the season.  Dave Thies of Huron posted a 2.66 mark.

All statistics are based on all games completed in the Basin League during the season except three which were not reported.  There were two games which were scheduled but were not played because of postponement. 

(The HURONITE and THE DAILY PLAINSMAN also carried a column by Dick Wood on the release of the final statistics.)

The Basin League season was a hectic one this summer and toward the end of the year it would have taken an official scorekeeper, working full time at the job, to keep up with the off-the-field disputes.  The column frankly got a little sick of the whole thing and completely ignored a couple of beauts, including a hassle between Pierre and Rapid City over post-season playoffs.

But elsewhere on this page is printed the final "official" Basin League statistics as released by the league office at Mitchell and we've simply got to take issue with several points

There are several places in which figures for the Huron Jims in the official statistics differ sharply from those posted by official scorer Milt Pronk. Monday night, with Pronk's records at our disposal, we spent a couple of hours checking the marks given us by Milt.  And after that session we can truthfully say that anyone who tries to find anything wrong with the meticulous records kept by Pronk is in for a frustrating experience.

Therefore, convinced of the accuracy of the Huron team records, we shall proceed to take issue with the marks released by the Basin League office.  It should be pointed out that the Huron team records are based on official scoresheets from both home and road games and include league games only, the same basis the official league records are based on.

First of all the league records show Len Van De Hey with a .346 average while the Huron ace actually had a .351 mark. Van De Hey's two-base hit total is not listed in the league records but his total is not listed in the league records but his total of 14 should have been good enough to tie him with Herman Charles of Yankton for fourth place in league standings.

And there's Andy Swota's earned run average. The veteran left-hander actually posted a 2.29 mark which would place him second in the league in that department. But league records don't even mention this figure.  Also unmentioned is Jake Tarr's 1.42 E.R.A. in 31 1/3 innings.  It's possible Tarr did not work enough innings to receive mention in this department but we've never seen any minimum or maximum set up on this sort of thing. 

Also slighted badly by the league office was the slugging performance of Jim's first baseman Carl Bush. Bush slammed 14 home runs, which ties him for first place and had 44 runs batted in, good for third place in the league standings, yet neither figure is mentioned by the league office. 

In all fairness to the league office it must be pointed out that there are a couple of possible reasons for these omissions.  One is, of course, the human error in keeping such a maze of records.  But more likely is the possibility that some scoresheets of Jims road games were not properly delivered to the league office.

This is just another example of the weakness of a league office that's run on a part-time basis.  We're not, at this particular moment, taking any slam at the individuals in the loop office this year but rather the setup as a whole which sees several public spirited citizens trying to do a full time job in their spare time.  It's high time the Basin League quit trying to furnish big-time baseball with bush league front office methods.
