Mr. Baseball

— 1862 - 1956 —

Connie Mack managed the Philadelphia Athletics for 50 years, 1901-1950. His teams won nine American League pennants and five World Series. Mr. Mack never wore a uniform, preferring to manage in street clothes while holding a scorecard to signal his players. This statue was unveiled near Connie Mack Stadium on April 16, 1957, moved to Veterans Stadium in 1971 and relocated here March 30, 2004, just before the opening of Citizens Bank Park.


Mr. Baseball
1862 - 1956
Connie Mack's Sportsman's Creed

I promise to play the game to the best of my ability at all times.
I will always play to win, but if I lose I will never look for excuses which would detract from my opponent's victory.
I will always abide by the rules of the game on the diamond as well as in my daily life.
I will never gloat in victory or pity myself in defeat.
I will judge a teammate as an individual and never on the basis of his race or religion.
