was a rookie in 1887 (don't laugh). I was a catcher
and played for 11 years, with a lifetime batting of .245
and still was voted into the Hall of Fame. I gained fame
as a manager, with 53 years, mostly leading the old Philadelphia
Athletics. I hold all managing records, most years, most
games 7,878 and most important, my teams won nine pennants.
My teams won three consecutive World Series -1910-1913 and
three pennants in a row in 1929-1932 with the aid of 'Lefty'
Listen-up: I managed in the major leagues in 1894-96 for
the Pittsburgh Pirates and again for the Philadelphia A's
from 1901-1950 (that's a long time). My real name
was Cornelius McGillicuddy, but I am very well-known by
my baseball name.
