Season 11 League Leaders

Now that the regular season is over, here's a look at Season 11's League Leaders.

In the American League, good things came in two, Wilton Gang led the league in batting average (.364) and OBP (.429), Butch Borland led the league in Home Runs (50) and RBI (140), while Dover teammate Roger Baker led the league in slugging percentage (.644) and OPS (1.051).  Another player who doubled up was Weldon Rando who led the league in runs (139) and Stolen Bases (89).  His 89 stolen bases were 2nd most in World history, and he also happens to own the records for 1st and 3rd most!  In the NL, Robb Ross was the only one to lead multiple categories, as he was the leader in batting average (.348), slugging percentage (.646) and OBP (1.073).  Here's the complete listing of offensive leaders:

OBP David Ontiveros Louisville 0.440

In the AL, it was all about Clyde Hurst. In a tremendous year, he lead the league in ERA (2.42), Strikeouts (213), WHIP (1.06) and Quality Starts (28).  Seems to me like he should be picking up a record tying 3rd Cy Young award this season. Steve Lampkin led the league in wins (21) and tied for the lead in Complete Games. Al Hollandsworth tied for the lead in Complete Games (6) and Shutouts (2).  In the NL, Che-Bang Kata led the league in innings pitched (254), strikeouts (253) and tied for the lead in quality starts (28).  Kata's 253 strikeouts came just short of breaking the top 5 best in World History, but Kata can be consoled by the fact that he, himself has all 5 of the top 5 best seasons in strikeouts, wow! Matty Posada recorded the 3rd most wins in World history with 24 and also tied Kata for most quality starts with 28. Dan Ohlendorf recorded 51 saves, 4th most in World history. Richard Ma recorded a 0.97 WHIP, which only 3 people have topped, but I didn't calculate it down to the decimal point to see if it's a true top 5.  Here's the complete listing of pitching leaders:
