Previous season     

The 1915 Newark Peppers season was a season in American baseball. After the 1914 season, the Indianapolis Hoosiers' remaining interest was purchased by Harry F. Sinclair and moved from Indianapolis, Indiana to Newark, New Jersey. The club also sold one of its top players, Benny Kauff, to the Brooklyn Tip-Tops to offset financial losses. After winning the Federal League championship the previous year, the Pepper dropped to 5th place. They finished 80-72, six games behind the Chicago Whales.
