The Philadelphia Athletics' 1943 season involved the A's finishing 8th in the American League with a record of 49 wins and 105 losses.

The Athletics considered using the Bader Field ballpark in Atlantic City for 1944 spring training. On November 17, 1943, Connie Mack examined Bader Field and the National Guard Armory as one possibility. But he knew the New York Yankees were already considering it. The A's went to McCurdy Field in Frederick, Maryland when the Yankees chose Atlantic City.[1]
