A look at the hitting and pitching leaders for each affiliate
In preparing for the season reviews this fall, I was saving the Nats stats for the month of April when it occurred to me that a monthly leaderboard might not be so bad. Folks over a certain age can remember that the Sunday newspaper sports section was the one time each week you could see how every batter and pitcher was doing in the majors.
Since it’s not compiled elsewhere so succinctly, here’s a look at the team leaders for each of the Nats affiliates, using the standard 2.7PA per game played for batters and 0.8IP per game for pitchers. In bold are the organizational leaders for each category.
