MANITOBA SENIOR LEAGUE

Tommy Town, Brandon first sacker, has run away with the batting crown in the Manitoba Senior League, with a .436 average. Injured for the last part of the season, Town just squeezed onto the eligible list with 55 at bats, one above the minimum required. A pair of Riverside Blues finished back of Town. Barry Moffatt finished at .380 and topped the league in hits, withy 38, and tied for the lead in runs, with 18. Garth Seafoot was third, hitting .370. Bob Thompson of St. Lazare, who was fourth, with a .368 mark, had the most runs batted in, 19.

Bill Cundiff of the St. Lazare Athletics led in almost every pitching category compiling nine wins in 13 decision, tossing 106 innings with 170 strikeouts.  Cundiff had began a pro career in 1961 losing all of his eight decisions, then finished 5-11 in 1962.
