Cornelius Alexander "Connie" Mack (1862-1956) was the legendary manager of the Philadelphia Athletics for 50 years, from 1901 to 1951, the longest managerial stint in baseball history. The "Tall Tactician", who was known for wearing a dignified business suit in the dugout instead of a uniform, won five World Series titles and built two Athletics dynasties - the club that went to four Series in five years from 1910 to 1914, and the team that won two out of three championships from 1929 to 1931. The 1929 club is considered one of the greatest baseball teams of all time. Mack, who holds the all time mark for victories as a manager with 3,731, was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1937.
