The strong finish and good quality play of the team attracted some new MLB attention as the Brooklyn Dodgers tabbed the Macon Peaches to be a part of their organization for the 1939 and 1940 seasons. Under the Dodgers umbrella, the Peaches finished in 3rd and 4th place, well above .500 as they made the playoffs both seasons. When the Dodgers pulled out in 1941, they were replaced by the Chicago Cubs. Their first Cubs season, proved to be one of their best ever, as the team won 90 games with a 1st place finish. It wouldn't be until 1942 however, when Milt Stock managed the team to 81 wins and 2nd place that  they would win it all… & their 2nd title at Luther Williams Field.
