Beavers Come up Short of Playoffs
Monday, September 26th, 1949
While they stayed relevant until late in the season, a playoff berth wasn't meant to be this season for the Buffalo Beavers. The club was eliminated from playoff contention today.

"Even though we knew where things stood, it's a disappointment," Beavers manager William Albrecht said.

This is the club's 14th playoff miss in a row. They last appeared in the postseason in 1935. In total, the Beavers have missed the playoffs 66 times in their 70-year history.
