Willie Mays came out on top in an otherwise evenly matched season. Ralph Kiner’s power earned him second place, followed by Chase Utley and dead ball era Topsy Hartsell. On the final day of the season, Earl Torgeson defeated Chase Utley 11-4, giving Torgeson a run differential of +2 for the season and a very real possibility of moving ahead to Round 5 despite his 6th place tie with Tony Perez. It will depend on the number of positions needed to make complete seasons in the Round 4 second chance.
