X-RAY

The two pennants have been decided, but the battle for individual glory continues
September 07, 1958

A Cannon and aslingshot might well be the weapons Ernie Banks (left) and Pete Runnels usewhen at the plate. Banks, the Cubs' powerful shortstop, blasts baseballs fromview, has 42 home runs and 110 RBIs to his credit. Boston's Runnels slapssingles to all fields, is hitting .330, has excellent chance to win his firstAL batting title.
