Notes
- Baltimore rode good pitching and defense, plus the offense of Ben Chapman and Roy Hobbs, to their first pennant since 1919.
- Run prevention was also key for the Cubs, who won the pennant for the first time.
- Foxx was one RBI away from the Triple Crown.
- Foxx, Lou Gehrig (Boston) Met Ott (NY Yankees), and Trosky all hit more homers than any NL player.
- David Price showed intimidating stuff, but was volatile, and finished with a below-average ERA.
- 40-year-old Babe Ruth (Pittsburgh) struggled terribly, hitting just four homers in 72 games.

- Pete Donohue (Browns) passed Harry Krause for the most career pitching WAR.

World Series
