Born today was Connie Mack;
Memories of few will extend so far back
To when he was catching in baseball's young days,
Or recall the half-century he managed the A's.*
He also owned the team. Sometime now banned in Major League Baseball. By the way, that suit he's wearing in the dugout? Now verboten too.
"You can't win them all." [Connie Mack]
I guess he knew from experience. Even though his teams won 5 World Series titles, they also finished last 17 times!
