Battalion CHS Sports Writer
A torrid two-man battle for the
batting leadership of the College
Station Little League continued
through Monday's games with the
Marion Pugh White Sox’ Danny
Feldman and the Black’s Pharmacy
Senators’ Joe Olian both batting
over the .500 mark. Feldman shows
the way with a sizzling .611 aver
age and Olian is next due to a
mark of .550.
The rest of^ the top ten batters
of the loop are as follows: the
Senators’ Jody Rush, ,.438; his
teammate Harry Lewis, .400; the
Orioles’ Larry Randolph, .391;
,Jackie Ross, of the Orioles, with
.375; the Senators’ Lax-ry Godfrey,
.333; the Orioles’ Geoi’ge Outlaw,
.318; and the Red Sox’ Eldon Hag-
ler and Bill Bex-ry, of the Oxioles,
both at a .286 clip.
Olian and Feldman lead the
league in base hits with eleven
each. In xains scored, Feldman,
with eleven, has a slim margin
over his teammate, Harold Cooner;
in R.B.L, Outlaw’s ten is bai’ely
of Randolph’s nine. Randolph has
the most doubles, six, and Berry
and Feldman x'emain tied for the
lead in homers, each having hit
two. Feldman also has the top
record in total bases, eighteen, and
in stolen bases, six.
Feldman’s slugging percentage
dropped considex-ably during the
past week, but he has a healthy
lead in that department with a
slightly fantastic mai’k of 1.000.
Trailing him ai'e Randolph, .652;
Berry, .619; Olian, .600; and Rush,
Johnny Williams, of the Sena-
tox*s, boasts the top earned xom av
erage, an amazing 0.94. Closely
bunched behind him ai'e Olian, 1.23;
the White Sox’ Ozzie Burke, 1.42;
Ricky Howard, of the Red Sox,
1.50; and the White Sox’ John
Stark and the Red Sox’ Eldon
Hagler, both with a neat 2.00.
Based on winning peirentage,
thi'ee hui'lei'S pace the loop with
identical 1.000 slates. Feldman and
Staxk have each won two games,
and Godfrey has captured one tilt
without a setback. Next comes
Burke, .667. The three White Sox
pitchers — Stark, Feldman, and
Burke — along with a lone Oi'iole,
Ross, lead the league in wins, each
having posted two. A total of six
hui'lei’S have tossed two complete
games apiece — Burke, Feldman,
Hagler, Howard, Olian and Stark.
Ross has toiled the most innings,
eighteen, but he is closely followed
by several other “workhorses.”
Feldman has pitched seventeen in
nings; Howard, sixteen; and Olian,
fifteen. Feldman maintains a good
lead in strikeouts with his total of
23, which is far ahead of Ran
dolph’s nineteen and Olian’s sev
The first half of the league
schedule comes to a close Friday
with the White Sox having al
ready cinched the opening half
crown. The second half opens next
Monday as the Senators battle the
Orioles, and the White Sox tangle
with the Red Sox in the nightcap.
At the conclusion of the second
half, the first and last half win
ners meet for the full-season title.
