The man in the business suit.
Cornelius McGillicuddy, Sr., never wore a uniform; he was always seen in the dugout wearing a starched white shirt, a three-piece suit, necktie, topped off with a bowler or sometimes a classic Italian Boater (straw hat).

His habit of directing his players on the field by waving his scorecard earned him the title "10th Man on the Field." Whatever his particular style, Connie Mack had a knack for creating a winning team.

Mack is the longest-serving manager in MLB history; he holds records for wins (3,731), losses (3,948), and games managed (7,755).

He managed the Philadelphia Athletics for the club's first 50 seasons, before retiring at age 87 following the 1950 season.

Connie Mack was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1937.
