National League averages show Brooklyn's Dixie Walker at the top of the hitters with a .357 mark‚ ahead of Stan Musial at .347. In an even closer vote than occurred in the American League‚ the NL MVP award goes to fielding wizard Marty Marion‚ who tallies one more vote than Cubs slugger Bill Nicholson (189). The Cardinals commited only 112 errors, for a fielding average of .982‚ both better than previous records held by the 1940 Reds. Marion is the 3rd different Cardinal in 3 years to win the honor.
