A continuing mystery in particle physics is the large polarization observed in inclusive hyperon production in high energy proton‐proton collisions. A model in which quarks become polarized in a direct quark‐quark scattering process is proposed to explain the observed pattern of the polarization in the hyperon system. We find that in this picture hyperon and elastic p‐p polarizations, which previously seemed unrelated, may have a simple and common origin.
