On opening day, the leadoff Roy Sievers hit a home run (I like to think of it as being on the first pitch) and then proceeded to hit two more in the same game. Quite a start to a season that saw the team lead in slugging and OPS and parlaying it into a first-place finish, besting Bob Elliott by two games. Fred McGriff and Vic Wertz finished 3 and 4 with Andruw Jones qualifying for the Third Round as well by virtue of his .500+ record. Lew Fonseca, Jose Altuve, and Orlando Cabrera will not advance to the next round.
- Lew Fonseca led all teams with a .248 batting average while the league hit a combined .230.
- There was plenty of power this season as five of the teams had more than 160 home runs. Sievers led with 225 and McGriff tacked on 202 of his own. Sievers8 led the league with 32.
- Pete Alexander4, pitching for Lew Fonseca, had 11 shootouts on the year.
- Jose Altuve had 20 hits in a nine-innning, 12-4 victory over Orlando Cabrera.
