Simon led the league in runs scored, 38, and was second in runs batted in. He was four back of the leader, Julie Owchar of the Tigers who knocked in 34.  Dave Sowinski of the Tigers led in stolen bases, with 21. Sowinski tied Roy for the most hits, each with 46. Lyle Moffat of the Calgary Giants was the top slugger with 69 total bases and a .322 average.

Bob Baird of the Jimmies was named the top hurler as he compiled a 10-1 won-lost record and led the loop with a 1.22 earned run average in 73 2/3s innings pitched.  Ray Parr of the Giants was the leader in strike outs, 95 in 74 2/3s innings.  He had a 7-3 mark.  Tom Sharpe of the Tigers finished with a 7-0 record.  (No futurer details were published, Lethbridge Herald, August 25, 1972, so we'll also keep the incomplete list below.)
