The New England League, which had performed in relative obscurity, benefited greatly from the influx of talent from the disbanded Western Massachusetts League. Manchester had won nine of ten games to easily win the first-half title of the New England League, but the club was quickly shunted aside in the second half by the two talented teams from the disbanded Western Massachusetts League. The former Chicopee squad, featuring Harry Sheridan and Joe Lynch, signed to represent Natick. The Harry Hough-led contingent that had performed for Springfield began New England League play in Lynn, but after a few games transferred to South Framingham. The two powerful newcomers dominated play, with South Framingham emerging in first place and Natick in second. In a post-season series, South Framingham took two quick games from Natick to verify their supremacy.
