Arlett Honored by National League
Monday, June 1st, 1931
For a man of advanced years in baseball terms, Buzz Arlett is defying all logic by wading through his first National League season. Nonetheless, Arlett is proving a formidable performer for Philadelphia, at least as far as this past May is concerned. Today he was hailed as the National League Rookie of the Month.

He put up a .283 average with 5 home runs, 33 RBIs and 20 runs scored.

This year Arlett is hitting .307 with 6 home runs and 40 RBIs to his credit. He has gotten on base at a .400 clip and scored 30 runs.
AL Selects Rookie Star of the Month
Monday, June 1st, 1931
Youngster Arky Vaughan emerged as the latest American League Rookie of the Month today. The young man from Chicago deserved the honor, batting .381 with 2 home runs and 18 RBI. Is the month of May a harbinger of things to come or just a fluke? We'll find out someday, but for now, we'll just let Vaughan enjoy the limelight.

For the year Vaughan is batting .381 with 43 hits and 2 home runs. He has scored 16 times and driven in 18.
