The 1916 Philadelphia Athletics season involved the A's finishing 8th in the American League with a record of 36 wins and 117 losses. The 1916 team is often considered by baseball historians the worst team in American League history,[1] and its .235 winning percentage is still the lowest ever for a modern (post-1900) big-league team.
