    The 1930 Philadelphia Athletics season involved the A's finishing first in the American League with a record of 102 wins and 52 losses. It was their second of three consecutive pennants. In the 1930 World Series, they defeated the St. Louis Cardinals in six games. This was the A's final World Series championship in Philadelphia. They would next win the World Series 42 years later, in 1972, after they had moved to Oakland. When playing the Cleveland Indians on July 25, the Athletics became the only team in Major League history to execute a triple steal twice in the one game.[1]

    Regular season

    The A's had three Hall of Famers in their starting line-up: Mickey Cochrane, Jimmie Foxx, and Al Simmons. Simmons won the AL batting title with a .381 average. Pitching ace Lefty Grove won the pitching triple crown.
