-- Pitchers: AL 74, NL 67.

Individuals with at least 1.0 WAR -- AL 16, NL 7.
-- Hitters: AL 8, NL 1.
-- Pitchers: AL 8, NL 6.

Aggregate WAR from leader tables below -- AL 33.4, NL 25.7.
-- Hitters: AL 17.1, NL 8.7.
-- Pitchers: NL 17.0, AL 16.3.

Aggregate WAR from all first-years -- AL 18.6, NL 11.6.
