The new Central League made serious inroads into the player pool of the five-year-old Philadelphia League. Defending champion De Neri was stripped of its best players by the upstart league. The powerful Conshohocken squad, which had dropped out of the league last season to tour, returned to the fold. The Iron Men, featuring high-scoring Steve White and defensive star Bill Herron, won the title. Manayunk was runner up for the second year in a row.
