1 Hagerstown forfeited 10 games from June 15 through June 24 because of a violation in the Player Class rule. Hagerstown was found guilty of having five “class” men on their roster, instead of the maximum of three per club.

*Editor’s note – Martinsburg was listed as Mountaineers in the Minor League baseball Encyclopedia, but the “Martinsburg Journal” referred to the club as the “Blue Sox” throughout my research of the 1921 season.
