If an award was to be given out today on which league was having the better offensive season, hands down right now the National League would win.

It’s nearly the end of April, with still three months away from the All-Star game, so it will be interesting to see which league is on top by then and maybe they will have an advantage in winning the Mid-season Classic.

Next post we will see who are the Pitching leaders.
