The Philadelphia Athletics' 1914 season was a season in American baseball. It involved the A's finishing 1st in the American League with a record of 99 wins and 53 losses. After the season, Connie Mack sold his best players off to other teams due to his frustration with the Federal League. The A's would not win another pennant until 1929.

Regular season

The franchise took a downturn in 1914. The heavily favored Athletics lost the 1914 World Series to the "Miracle" Boston Braves in a four-game sweep. Miracles often have two sides, and for a few years this "miracle" wrought disaster on the A's. Mack traded, sold or released most of the team's star players soon after, and the team fell into a lengthy slump.
