The 1913 Philadelphia Athletics season involved the A's finishing first in the American League with a record of 96 wins and 57 losses, 6.5 games ahead of the second-place Washington Senators. The Athletics then defeated the New York Giants in the 1913 World Series, 4 games to 1.

In 2001, baseball historian Bill James ranked the 1913 incarnation of the Athletics' famous "$100,000 infield" as the best of all time in major league history (first baseman Stuffy McInnis, second baseman Eddie Collins, third baseman Frank "Home Run" Baker, shortstop Jack Barry).
