HL Top Pitcher Award for September to Burnham
Wednesday, October 1st, 1930
Russ Burnham took a much-deserved turn in the spotlight earlier today as he accepted the Heartland League Pitcher of the Month award for September.

The 23-year-old Brewers starter is a relative newcomer to the league, but nonetheless racked up an impressive 4-1 won-lost record in 5 starts. This month he fanned 26 batters in 40.1 innings and compiled a 2.68 ERA.

A look at his career stats shows Burnham has a record of 7 wins and 3 losses and a 2.98 ERA.
HL's #1 Batter Announced
Wednesday, October 1st, 1930
Lincoln Legislators fans believe they've got a talented young star in Howard Moss.

He did nothing to dissuade that notion in September, as he hit .357 with 3 home runs, 14 RBIs and 15 runs scored.

The end result was the right fielder being named the Heartland League Batter of the Month.

Moss has played in 167 games and is hitting .309 lifetime with 104 RBIs, 194 hits, 27 doubles, 26 triples and 19 home runs. He has scored 106 times and stolen 4 bases.
