baseball X-RAY

Rookie Honors in the National League belong, so far, to the Phillies' Ed Bouchee (left) and Jack Sanford (right). Bouchee, a power-hitting first baseman, has dominated rookie hitting statistics all season, while Sanford, a 28-year-old fast ball pitcher, could be the first rookie 20-game winner in the league since the Giants' Larry Jansen in 1947.
