Season 17 League Leaders

With Season 17 in the books and the playoffs under way, it's a good time to look back at this season's League Leaders in Kenny Powers.

In the American League, Sherman Dunston of San Francisco led the league in batting average, OBP, slugging percentage and OPS.  His slugging percentage of .694 and OPS of 1.130 were each the 4th best single season totals in Kenny Powers history. His season was one for the ages. He also finished 2nd in home runs and RBI, trailing Javier Sivilla of Pawtucket in each category.  Sivilla racked up 57 HR and 155 RBI this season.

In the NL, J.C. Ganzel of Honolulu dominates the league leaders listing, leading the league in Home Runs, RBI, Hits and Runs. He finished 4th in batting average, missing the Triple Crown by 13 batting average points. Jeremy Randall of Buffalo led the league and OBP and OPS, his omission from the top 5 MVP candidates in the NL is truly baffling.

Here are the complete Offensive League Leaders!

The AL pitching league leaders were dominated by two hurlers. Matty Posada of Nashville led the AL in ERA, Strikeouts, and WHIP.  He missed out on the pitching Triple Crown by three wins, as he was topped in that category by Valerio Baez of New Britain, who in addition to leading the league in wins, led the league in Innings Pitched, Quality Starts, and Shutouts.  His 24 wins tied for the 4th best total in Kenny Powers history, while his 283.2 Innings Pitched was 2nd all-time, and his four shutouts tied for 3rd all-time.

In the NL, multiple category leaders include Ellis Brock of Tampa Bay (WHIP and tied for the lead in Shutouts), Clyde Hurst of St. Louis (Strikeouts and tied for the lead in Quality Starts), and Jim Forbes of Burlington (Innings Pitched and tied for the lead in Shutouts).
