Season 29 League Leaders

With the regular season in the books, it's time to recap the league leaders for Season 29!

OFFENSE
In the American League, Francis King of Salem won the batting title, tied for the lead in OPS, and led the league in Slugging and OPS.  Yet, he doesn't appear on this season's MVP ballot.  Hmmm, I guess the claim of a snub might be legit here!  Crash Cepeda of San Francisco led the league in Hits and Runs.

In the National League, it's all about Santa Fe's Edinson Hernandez.  He led the NL in Batting Average, RBI, Hits, Runs, OBP, Slugging and OPS.  Wow!  Granted, Santa Fe is a very hitter friendly park, but regardless, quite the impressive season for Hernandez.

Here are the complete offensive league leaders!
