The 1911 Major League Baseball season was contested from April 12 to October 26, 1911. The New York Giants and Philadelphia Athletics were the regular season champions of the National League and American League, respectively. The Athletics then defeated the Giants in the World Series, four games to two.
This was the first of four seasons that the Chalmers Award, a precursor to the Major League Baseball Most Valuable Player Award (introduced in 1931), was given to a player in each league.
This is the most recent major league season from which no stadiums remain in use. The Boston Red Sox have used Fenway Park as their home field since the 1912 season.
