Leaders of June 8, 1946

Woody Salmon Paces Circuit
One of the reasons the Salem Senators have been in Western International baseball league contention all season is represented by 200-pound Woody Salmon, catcher, who currently is leading the loop in hitting with a lusty .414 average in 25 games.
Danny Amaral, former Portland outfielder now with Bremerton, is second with .398 in 27 games.
Frankie Plouf, who dropped the official scorer's pencil in favor of a baseball bat when the Bremerton infield needed plugging, is third with a ripe .384 average in 17 games.
Other among the leaders:
Eddie Fitzgerald, Wenatchee, .380; Vico, Salem, .372; Stetter, Wenatchee, leader for the two previous weeks, .369; Risk, Spokane, .367; Kemper, Tacoma, and Reynolds, Salem, .364, and Hedington, Tacoma, 362.
Milt Cadinha of the Spokane Indians led the hurlers for games through June 2 as reported by Howe News Bureau, with six wins and no defeats. Cy Greenlaw of Tacoma won eight and lost one, one of his victories being a 3-0 no-hit, no-run May 30 job against Yakima.
George Vico of Salem has batted in 42 runs and is tied with Jack Lohrke of Spokane for most hits, with 55. Other leaders:
Runs scored — Stetter, Wenatchee, 42. Doubles — Lohrke, Spokane 15. Triples — Lohrke, Spokane; Amaral, Bremerton; Barisoff, Bremerton; Picetti, Spokane, Harrington Wenatchee, 6 apiece. Home runs — Warner, Wenatchee, and Reese, Bremerton 9 apiece. Stolen bases — Harrington, Wenatchee, 16.
