BASEBALL X-RAY

July 14, 1957

At Midseason, Mickey Mantle (above left) and Hank Aaron, who have dominated X-Ray's hitting statistics all year, seem likely triple-crown winners. Williams, Musial, Sievers and Skowron have also appeared weekly as batting, home-run and runs-produced leaders. Pierce, Sanford, Wynn and Bunning have consistently led the pitchers.
