The Philadelphia Athletics' 1902 season involved the A's finishing 1st in the American League with a record of 83 wins and 53 losses.

Contents

Regular season

In 1902, the Philadelphia Phillies obtained an injunction, effective only in Pennsylvania, barring Athletics' second baseman Nap Lajoie from playing baseball for any team other than the Phillies.[1] Lajoie had played for the Athletics in 1901, and appeared in just one game in 1902 before the injunction went into effect. The American League responded by transferring Lajoie's contract to the Cleveland Bronchos, who were subsequently known as the "Naps" in Lajoie's honor for several seasons.
