[edit] History, Comments, Contributions

The 1954 Philadelphia Athletics were the last edition of the Athletics to play in Philadelphia, PA; they would be sold to Arnold Johnson after the season and become the Kansas City Athletics in 1955.

The Athletics did not leave Philly with a bang. 1954 was one of the worst seasons in team history, as even in their darkest years, they had never before finished 60 games out of first place.

[edit] Standings

1954 was the first season in American League history in which two teams finished with 100 or more wins and two finished with 100 or more losses.
