The 1934 Bi-State League lists Jimmy Sanders with a .423 league leading batting average. (page 281 of the Encyclopedia). This should show as a league leading record for the entire existance of the league, (1934-1942). However in the league records page 643, Gene Handley of the 1936 Mt. Airy Team is listed as the league record holder with a .403 BA.

Sanders did hit .423, and led all minor leagues that year. However, he had only 222 AB, so there may be a minimum PA cut-off that was used to determine the league records. The B-State season was expanded between 1934 and 1936. --Jeff 19:08, 25 January 2008 (EST)
