Exceptions' are Few There are .of court's, exceptions to tho rule, but not this year. The i Athletics, winning the American lea-1 gue pennant, lead all the other teams with a club batting average of .-94 j cent. The Giants, winners of the Na-j tional league race, lead the league with an average of .'2U per cent. Last year the Giants batt'ad some seven pofcrU -better than Chicago, ycsi the Cubs won the pennant. On the other hand, the Athletics won out and led in batting also.
