Emery Homes’ Marinacci Batting Champ
Top Spoils to
Emery in Metro
Hec Marinacci was the lone Metro Fastball League swinger to top the coveted .400 plateau and it earned him the league batting title by a wide margin.
The Emery homes’ belter stroked 25 hits in 60 plate appearances for a .417 average, 52 points better than runner-up George Lung of Calcot Hotel who finished at .365 with 27 hits in 74 trips.
Emery’s Bill Noble was far and away the top hurler in the four-team league with a brilliant 15-0 won lost record, 188 strikeouts and a microscopic earned run average of 0.81.
Marinacci was a triple winner also taking the RBI title with 17 and the triples crown with four. He also proved he could field, posting a .973 percentage.
[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]
