The photographic evidence from 1914-1916 appears to show a slight alteration to the jersey’s sleeves. The sleeves are almost half as long as previous seasons, and feature thin red piping at the very edge of the sleeve. No other details of the jersey were changed in these seasons.

Following the 1916 season, Mrs Britton sold her stake in the team to an investor group, including the new primary owner Sam Breadon. The new ownership group wanted a baseball man to run the team, and hired Branch Rickey from the American League St. Louis Browns to be the new team president.
