1901 Eastern League

A third consecutive odd-year championship for manager Al Buckenberger, this time a delayed blowout, earned him a three year stint as a National League manager during which time his nineteenth century managerial notions would drive that once-great franchise into the ground.

Only a small losing streak in mid-July tarnished Rochester's run - probably against the troubled Hartford team which disbanded September 10, two and one-half weeks before season's close. Ed Barrow's Toronto club, in the second of three years he managed them, poked their heads into first place, July 20.

Struggling Syracuse transferred to Brockton, July 25. After the season, Hartford's demise was paired with the disbandment of the Brockton team and the New Jersey cities of Newark and Jersey City gave the league the geographical balance it would enjoy for most of the twentieth century (as the International League).
