The 1914 Philadelphia Athletics finished first in the American League with a record of 99 wins and 53 losses, 8.5 games ahead of the Boston Red Sox. They went on to face the Boston Braves as heavy favorites in the 1914 World Series, which they lost in four straight games.

The franchise took a downturn after the season. Connie Mack traded or sold his best players off to other teams due to his frustration with the Federal League and the A's fell into a lengthy slump. Tney would not win another pennant until 1929.
