The other participating teams were Victoria and hosts South Australia. The two newest teams to the tournament—Western Australia and Queensland—did not participate.5 However both did host an interstate series: Western Australia hosted a South Australian team,6 and Queensland hosted New South Wales after the Sydney season.7
With the reduction of participating teams back to the original three, the format also returned to a pure round-robin tournament. Once again, each team met each other team twice over the course of the week. In each game, two competition points were on offer to the teams. The points were awarded as follows:
Win – two points
Tie – one point
Loss – no points
At the end of the tournament, the team with the most points was declared the winner, and awarded the Claxton Shield.1
At the conclusion of the tournament, representatives from the Australian Baseball Council selected an All-Australian team. It was the second such Australian team selected at the end of a Claxton Shield tournament. As had been the case in the 1939 side, New South Wales players dominated the team, with seven players selected.8
