Charlotte wasn't nearly as good in 1947, going 72-68 (.514), 16 ½ games out of 1st place, but that was still good enough to make the playoffs. 116,000 fans came through the gate (putting them in the middle of the pack). Sammy Meeks' 191 Hits and Robert Callan's 3.08 ERA would lead the league as Charlotte ran over 1st place Spartanburg in the 1st round of the playoffs. Another intense championship series would follow but Charlotte had experience in that category. It would take all 7 games but Charlotte would again come out victorious and bring their 2nd straight title back to Crockett Park.
