Trenton added former New York State League star Kid Franckle to its veteran team. Some of the key performers were starting to get creaky with age, however, and the New Jersey team could only break even in forty games and managed a disappointing third place finish. Despite finishing two games back in fourth place, perpetual loser Greystock, by contrast, looked like a team on the way to a brighter future. Buoyed by the acquisition of Lou Sugarman, a good scorer and valuable all-around floor man, the Grays had their best record in three seasons. De Neri jumped off to an early season lead, but soon drifted into the erratic pattern of play that had marked last year’s club. An injury to center Bill Keenan vanquished any hope of recovery and the once powerful Joe Fogerty and Winnie Kinkaide combination slinked home in fifth place for the second year in a row. Defending champion Jasper slid from the top to the bottom of the standings in just one season, devastated by the retirement of Dutch Wohlfarth and the mid-season defection of Bill Kummer to a minor league team near his home in western Pennsylvania.
