Coming off a 19 loss season in Newark, 21 year old Red Shea came to Toronto hoping for new life. New life he would get as Shea had a career year posting a phenomenal 27-7, 2.63 record that would lead to his promotion to the New York Giants. You could tell that this was going to be a special year for Toronto as the rest of the team came out to support him. King Bader and Rosy Ryan each put up 19-9 records in the #2 and #3 holes in the rotation. Molly Craft (8-0, 2.18) and Billy Snyder (8-1, 3.64) would round out the unhittable pitching staff. As if that wasn't impressive enough... six .300 hitters would come to the plate led by Benny Kauff (18 2B, 6 3B, 12 HR, .343), Frankie O'Rourke (37 2B, 11 3B, 4 HR, .327) and Eddie Onslow (23 2B, 12 3B, 7 HR, .339). This Toronto team would come together in such an amazing way that Minor League Baseball itself would rank this 1920 Maple Leafs franchise as #21, best ever Minor League team in baseball history to ever take the field. Completing the season with a 108-46 record, these Toronto Maple Leafs had nearly defied imagination. To assure themselves that they wouldn't repeat 1919 and finish in 2nd place behind the Baltimore Orioles, they played ".900 ball throughout September". *Baseball historians, Bill Weiss & Marshall Wright. So would you believe that the #21 best ranked team in the history of the Minor Leagues... was beaten by the #9 best ranked team in the history of the Minor Leagues? In perhaps the biggest upset in Canadian history, the Baltimore Orioles came from behind to win 110 games and beat the Maple Leafs in one of the most spectacular races to a pennant. Featuring Jack Ogden (27-9), Harry Frank (25-12) and future Hall of Famer Lefty Grove (12-2), the .400 hitting Merwin Jacobson (35 2B, 15 3B, 7 HR, .404) and the former Toronto Maple Leaf Bill Holden (49 2B, 16 3B, .352), the Baltimore Orioles would ruin the best season by any team to ever play at Hanlan's Point.
