 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. The shortstop batted .025 higher than Tommy, who averaged .015 higher than Bonds. Cobb, who isn't Danny, and the Reliable Insurance player both say their favorite Big Leaguer is Alex Rodriguez. The catcher among the top six hitters isn't Ott. Danny isn't on the Qwik Stop team. Cobb's average was .025 higher than the third baseman's, which was .025 higher than that of the Keystone Bank player. Young and the batters from the Frank's Diner and the Lions Club teams tied for the league lead in home runs with six each. In the final batting standings, Ruth finished immediately ahead of Jackie, who isn't Bonds. The third baseman, who isn't Tommy, robbed the Frank's Diner star batter of a hit in the league championship game. Andy's average was higher than the left fielder's, which was higher than Ott's. The first baseman batted .050 higher than Bobby, who isn't the Lions Club team's star player. Paige, who isn't Jackie, and the Keystone Bank team member both are Baltimore Orioles fans.
