Comments

Stu McCorkindale - With Ken sending the final results in YESTERDAY, I was able to calculate stat bonuses to determine how much extra cash each team picked up for extraordinary performances in TCBA 63. We ended up with some wild and wooly races with multiple awards being awarded in several categories.

The major batting and pitching awards were dominated by two teams who made their marks on the season with outstanding season long hitting and pitching.

BERGEN's hitters were the bane of every pitching staff and the results were indicative of the Barflies dominance this season. Tommy Davis and Norm Siebern finished in a flat footed tie for the batting crown at .355. This was Davis' second straight batting crown while Siebern's red hot finish (he also led the league in OBA) allowed the duo to contribute $1.0 million each to the BERGEN coffers. Another $2.0 million was delivered by Harmon Killebrew who engaged in a season long battle with team mate Hank Aaron for the home run and RBI crowns. The Killer led the way with 63 and 166 respectively.

The Barflies also swept the team leader boards with a BA of .298 and 229 homers that helped produce 1,007 runs. Aaron shared the top mark for most consecutive games on base with BRADENTON's Billy Williams, as they each reached base in 44 consecutive games.

Rounding out the BERGEN "hit parade" was their shared entry in the consecutive game home run streak. A total of NINE players hit homers in four straight games with Aaron, Killebrew and Felix Mantilla turning the trick for the Barflies. The other six winners were Ed Bailey and Gordy Coleman (WILDERNESS), Norm Sherry (HP), Eddie Mathews (SS), Rocky Colavito (KIL) and Orlando Cepeda (LI).

SOUTH STARRUCCA's Bill White was able to break through the Barfly barrier to capture the award for longest hitting streak at 32 games.

As dominant as the Barfly bats were, the CLEVELAND pitching staff also led the way when it came to earning cash for the Spider future. Robin Roberts captured the ERA title with a 1.99 mark while big Don Drysdale emulated Killebrew's batting feats with a league leading 30 wins and 224 strikeouts. The Spiders also led the way with a team best ERA of 2.76 while the WILDERNESS hurlers punched out 990 batters on strikes.

A pair of dominant lefties led the individual streak categories with NEWMARKET's Warren Spahn authoring 37.0 shutout innings while NORFOLK's Whitey Ford won a dozen straight decisions.

Team Fielding Percentage resulted in a tie between MIMOSA and FORTNEY at .985 while the Mirthmakers added an extra $0.5 million for turning 161 DPs in as many games.

CLEVELAND's Vada Pinson converted a streak of 157 errorless games (in as many appearances) into a unanimous vote to the centerfield on the Gold Glove team. Joining Pinson on the Gold Glove team are - C - Del Crandall - KILKENNY 1B - Norm Siebern - BERGEN 2B - Kenny Hubbs - NEWMARKET 3B - Ken Boyer - MIMOSA SS - Chico Fernandez - HYDE PARK (Surprise!!) LF - Lenny Green - SOUTH STARRUCCA CF - Pinson RF - Hank Aaron - BERGEN P - Joey Jay - BRADENTON

In terms of total loot, the Barflies were the biggest winners with $8.5 million in bonus cash. CLEVELAND picked up $4.5 while BRADENTON notched $2.0 and SOUTH STARRUCCA and WILDERNESS added $1.5 each. HYDE PARK, KILKENNY, MIMOSA and NEWMARKET cleared $1.0 with FORTNEY, LONG ISLAND, and NORFOLK getting $0.5 more than the shutout MEXICALI, SACRAMENTO, SIOUXLAND and WAUKESHA.
