SOUTHERN LEAGUE

According to the league's final statistics, Ron McKechney of the Swift Current Indians has won the Southern League batting crown for 1965 with a fantastic .403 average. The towering second baseman did it in a most deliberate and steady manner, racing to the fore as the season opened and maintaining a stable pace as the games slipped by. A breakdown of his 31 hits, a league high, shows 19 singles, eight doubles, one triple and four home runs. Bobby Lewis of Swift Current Indians won the home run crown belting 8.

Doug Modrell of Swift Current was the loop's leading pitcher with seven wins and just two defeats, one more victory than Wayne LeBere of Moose Jaw.
