MANITOBA SENIOR BASEBALL LEAGUE

Import pitcher Dan Kaupla of the McAuley Blazers has been voted winner of the Gordon Smith Memorial Trophy as the Most Valuable Player of the Manitoba Baseball League for 1976.  In making the announcement, league secretary Don Summer said Kaupla received 58 of a possible 65 points in ballotting of the league's ten managers. The right-hander, who compiled a 12-0 record during the league's 26-game schedule, won the award over runner-up Stan Furman of Souris Cardinals.  Grant Everard of Riverside finished at 11-2. Kaupla's record topped an impressive debut he had as a McAuley rookie in 1975 when he rang up a 9-1 mark during the regular season.

Furman won the batting championship with a .470 average in 100 at bats topping Mark Fisher of Riverside, at .438, and Rick McFadyen of Brandon, at .375.  Chuck Lang and Rod Fallis of Binscarth were the top sluggers, each with 8 home runs.  Fisher led in doubles, with 11 and Craig Bell of Riverside had the most triples, 5.  McFadyen knocked in the most runs, 38.
