The Original Celtics won twelve straight games without a defeat in the first half of MBL action before they dropped out to tour, leaving runner-up Elizabeth to claim first place. Borgmann toiled futilely through the first half with an undermanned Paterson team to a seventh place finish. At the break, the Paterson management contracted with Kingston owner Pop Morgenweck for the Borgmann’s New York State League teammates to also represent the New Jersey city team in the second half of the Metropolitan League season. The new Paterson team finished tied for first place with the Brooklyn Pros, and then took two out of three playoff games from them to claim the second season title. Later they captured the league championship by the same margin from first-half champion Elizabeth.
