George Stirnweiss of the Yankees gets 3 hits
on the final day to raise his average to .309.

only other .300 hitter playing full time is Johnny
Dickshot. Neither Cuccinello or Dickshot ever play
another game in the ML. Only Elmer Flick in 1905 and
Carl Yastrzemski in 1968 ever lead the AL with a lower
average than Stirnweiss, but the latter also leads
the AL with 195 hits, 107 runs, 22 triples, 301 SB,
33 TB, and a .476 SA.
