|In this year's Summerset Little League, Mickey and five other players
finished 1st-6th in hitting and made the All-Star tournament team. Each
slugger plays a different position, one right field, and plays on a different
league team, one on the Valley Lumber squad. Given the stats below, can
you hit a grand slam by determining each player's full name, the position
and team for which he plays, and his batting average for the 2003 season?
- The six hitters had averages ranging from .400 up to a league-leading
.500, with no two having the same figure.
- These three players ranked in consecutive higher-to-lower order in the
batting race: Danny, Paige, and the Reliable Insurance team member.
- The Lions Club star isn't the hard-hitting first baseman.
