Tom Awad, who had the distinction of hitting the only home run in the league this season, is the 1960 individual batting champion of the Mic Mac Class “D” Baseball League.
Whit Tucker, Awad’s team-mate with the pennant winning A.K.O club, emerged as the loop’s top pitcher. Final batting and pitching statistics were released today by the Western Ontario Scorers’ Association.
Awad topped the batting with 22 hits in 57 trips to the plate for a .386 mark. Tucker was the most effective pitcher with a perfect 3-0 record and a dazzling earned-run average of 0.37.
Doug Ferguson of Varsity Sports Centre was the loop’s “workingest” pitcher with 11 decisions to his credit. Nine wins and two defeats. His E.R.A mark was a very respectable 0.89.
[info_box] Q: How successful are organ transplant operations? A: Receiving a transplant can literally save or dramatically improve a seriously ill person’s quality of life. Advances in surgical skills and better drugs mean that a year after surgery 93% of kidneys in living donor transplants, 88% of kidneys from people who have died, 87% of organs in liver transplants and 85% of organs in heart transplants are still functioning well. These figures are improving all the time. [/info_box] [ztop] [savelives_box]
