The 1914 St. Louis Terriers were led by player/manager and future Hall of Famer, Mordecai "Three-Finger" Brown. There were high expectations for the club during the season. Besides, the ex-Cub ace Brown, the team had pitchers Doc Crandall from the New York Giants, and 24 game winner with the Washington Senators, Bob Groom.
St. Louis got out of the gate very quickly and was at the top of the standings for the first month going 10-3 with a 8 game winning streak. But they then quickly faltered and dropped down into the cellar. With the team performing badly by late summer, manager Brown was traded to the Brooklyn Tip Tops. The managerial post was then given to Fielder Jones, who had previously managed the Chicago White Sox to become World Series Champions in 1906. The team finished last, 25 1/2 games from the front running Indianapolis squad.
