After five consecutive American League Championships, the New York Yankees won 103 games, but failed to make the playoffs as the Cleveland Indians won 111 games behind the pitching of Bob Lemon, Early Wynn, Mike Garcia, Art Houtteman, and Bob Feller. The Chicago White Sox would finish 3rd in the American League with 94 wins while the five other AL teams failed to win more than 69 teams while the two teams losing 100 or more games. One of those teams, the Baltimore Orioles, debuted in 1954 after moving from St. Louis to bring baseball back to Baltimore for the first time since 1902. Things were more competitive in the National League where the New York Giants, Brooklyn Dodgers, and Milwaukee Braves would battle throughout the summer. In the end, the Giants would take the National League title and face the Cleveland Indians in the World Series. The Giants would sweep the Indians in the World Series as Cleveland plated just 9 runs in four games.

Three notable debuts occurred in 1954. Hank Aaron played a large role for the Milwaukee Braves while Harmon Killebrew debuted for the Washington Senators, playing in just 9 games. Another notable debut in 1954 was Tommy Lasorda who made four relief appearances for the Brooklyn Dodgers. Lasorda wouldnt have much of a major league playing career, but did go on to have a hall of fame managerial career.

Willie Mays would return to baseball after spending two years in military service to win the National League MVP award and the player of the year award while batting .345 with 41 HR. Yogi Berra (.307 / 22 HR / 125 RBI) took the AL MVP award. On the hill, Johnny Antonelli (21-7. 2.30 ERA) would win the pitcher of the year award while in the American League, Bob Lemon (23-7, 2.72 ERA) would take the honors.
