Question 22 - Who Was I?

long, tall, dark, mysterious managerI 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' Grove. 

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.
