1906 season review

The 1906 season ended like the previous ones with the Reds and the Blues winning their respective league championships. The Reds had a final tally of 114 victories, a 16 win dropoff from last year, when nearly every position player was injured at some point during the season. One exception was MVP Dexter Jones who posted a new walk record with an incredible 195 bases on balls. Pitching aces Lou Ellis and   Tom Saunders had slight off years, but George Bentley came to the rescue with a 19-3 record and a 2.76 ERA and won the Best Pitcher Award. In the Blue League Herman Augustus of the Maroons won the HR and RBI title. Bradley Duckworth of the Leafs was the league's best pitcher with a 16-8 record and a 2.93 ERA. Curiously no single pitcher in either league won 20 games.
The Con Cup ended in a Reds' four game sweeo. Although all of the games were close, the result was never in doubt, as the Blues never led in any of the four games.
