During the regular season, Peooria tied the Wilmington Hornets atop the Eastern Division with identical 94-60 records. The tie was broken in a three game playoff series that was won by Wilmington outfielder Jim Rivera's walkoff homer in the bottom of the ninth inning of game three.  In the award voting, Ted Kluszewski again won the Triple Crown. Kluszewski led the league with 55 home runs, 166 runs batted in, and a .365 average (tying the league record set by him in 1955), and easily won both the MVP and Babe Ruth Awards.
