The Duffy Florals won the MBC first championship but did so with a bit of controversy. Detroit and Chicago had finished with the same record, but Chicago had not played the league mandated 12 league games. Yet, league owners took Chicago over Detroit and the Florals would go on to defeat Akron and Indianapolis for the championship.

In 1937 when the MBC reorganized into the NBL, no Chicago team was admitted.
