The Philadelphia Athletics' 1947 season involved the A's finishing 5th in the American League with a record of 78 wins and 76 losses. Except for a 5th place finish in 1944, the A’s finished in last or next-to-last place every year from 19351946. In 1947, Connie Mack not only got the A’s out of last place, but actually finished with a winning record for the first time in 14 years.
