Santa Cruz were the undefeated CCAL champions for the second consecutive year. The players went into the NCS playoffs feeling confident, but lost to San Jose by an unexpected score, 0-12.

Clarence Hargraves was the top pitcher in the league, winning all five league games. At bat Hargraves had a .475 batting average and hit clean up. The impressive skills of Elbert Andrews, a third year as starting catcher and captain of the team, allowed Hargraves to throw worry-free games from the mound all season.
