Season 16 League Leaders

With the playoffs in full swing, it's a good time to reflect back on the regular season and look at the league leaders.   Let's get right into it!

In the AL, Weldon Rando has not slowed down, stealing 108 bases, only getting caught once!  That's the 2nd most stolen bases in Kenny Powers history, and he now owns the top 5 highest season totals in stolen bases.  He also led the league in runs (134). Sherman Dunston led the league in OBP, SLG and OPS.  What an amazing hitter! Andy Minor had the third highest single season hits total in Kenny Powers history (224).

On the NL side, it was J.C. Ganzel who led the most major categories.  He had 61 home runs, coming in at 5th all-time, and also tied for the league lead in RBI, and led the league in hits and OPS.  Luis Navarro led the league in Runs and OBP, in leading Oklahoma City to the best record this season.

Here are the complete offensive leaders!

In the AL, it was a tale of two pitchers. Matty Posada led the league in ERA, Strikeouts, WHIP and tied for the lead in Quality Starts and Complete Games.  Ralph Moseley led the league in Innings Pitched and Wins, and tied for the lead in Quality Starts and Complete Games.  His amazing 27 wins blew the field away, and is in fact the second most in Kenny Powers history!

In the NL, it was a one man show.  It was a truly epic season for Tampa Bay's Ellis Brock, winning the pitching triple crown (league lead in ERA, Wins and Strikeouts) and also led the league in WHIP, Innings Pitched and Quality Starts.  He set a new record for single season WHIP, ranked 2nd all time in ERA and Quality Starts, 3rd all-time in Strikeouts, 5th all-time in Innings Pitched, and tied for 5th all-time in Wins.  What a season.  Honorable mention goes to Jim Forbes of Burlington for leading the league in Complete Games and Shutouts.
