1931 World Series program

The 1931 Philadelphia Athletics, under the guidance of legendary manager Connie Mack, took their third straight American League pennant by winning 107 games. Al Simmons won his second consecutive AL batting title with a .390 average, and pitcher Lefty Grove went 31-4 for the A's. But both were outdone in the end by Cardinals' centerfielder Pepper Martin, who batted .500 and stole five bases in the World Series, which the Cards won with a 4-2 victory in game seven.
