Mexican League Final Stats

Chris Carter fell short of the Mexican League record for homeruns, falling five shy with 49. He also led the league in RBIs with 119. With this kind of year the all or nothing swinger could find a major league team interested in him next year.

In most years those kind of numbers would win him the MVP award but Alonzo Harris had a stellar year, hitting .343 while falling one homer short of becoming a 40/40 player. He hit 39 homeruns and stole 45 bases. He led the league in runs scored with 131 and was second to Carter in RBIs at 117.

Felix Pie fell short of hitting .400, an end of season slump dropping his overall average to .381. This allowed Daniel Mayora to take the batting title with a .391 average.

Cesar Valdez should be a cinch to win pitcher of the year honors since he led the team in wins (15-2) and ERA (2.26). The balls were quite lively in the Mexican League, with only three pitchers with an ERA less than 4.00 that qualified for the ERA title.

The playoffs will see Monclova play at Monterrey and Saltillo playing at Tijuana in the Northern Division. Down south Yucatan travels to Oaxaca and Quintana Roo goes to Mexico City to play the Diablos Rojos.
