1966 Statistics






SOUTHERN  LEAGUE :

Final statistics published in the Regina Leader-Post indicate that a first-time winner, Bev Hickie, and a man who's won twice before, Wayne LeBere, reign as the Southern League's champion batter and pitcher, respectively.

Hickie, the 22-year old centerfielder for the Melville Millionaires won everything but the home run title, relinquishing that to teammate Dan Roach, as he marched to his championship with a dazzling .372 average.  Import catcher Ira McKnight was the runner-up in the batting race with a .359 average.  Larry Bachiu of Regina was third, at .343.

LeBere's 9 - 3 record was three wins better than his nearest challenger, Ken Simon of the Regina Red Sox. LeBere led the league in strikeouts, 93, and complete games, 8.
