An original team in the American League (AL), the Philadelphia Athletics won nine pennants and five World Series between 1902 and 1932. During the next 23 years, however, the club finished above fourth once but only seventh or eighth in 14 Major League Baseball (MLB) regular seasons. After purchasing the Athletics from the Mack family in 1954, American industrialist and sportsman Arnold Johnson moved the team from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to Kansas City, Missouri.
