Connie Mack : the turbulent and triumphant years, 1915-1931 by Norman L Macht( Book )

7 editions published in 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Philadelphia Athletics dominated the first fourteen years of the American League, winning six pennants under the leadership of their founder and manager, Connie Mack. But beginning in 1915, where the second volume in Norman L. Macht's three-part biography picks up the story, Mack's teams fell from pennant winners to last place and stayed there for seven years. World War I robbed baseball of young players, and Mack's rebuilding efforts using youngsters of limited ability made his teams the objects of public ridicule. At the age of 59 and in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds, Connie Mack remade the A's and rose again to the top, even surpassing his earlier success. Baseball biographer and historian Macht shows us the man and his time and the game of baseball in all the glory of the 1920s, and how Connie Mack built the 1929-31 champions--a team many consider baseball's greatest ever.--From publisher description
Football's last iron men : 1934, Yale vs. Princeton, and one stunning upset by Norman L Macht( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In November 1934, the Princeton football team unbeaten in its last fifteen games faced the 3 to 3 Yale Bulldogs, who gave new meaning to the term underdogs. As much a thrilling play by play account of college football at its finest as it is a fascinating work of sports history, this book chronicles the season that brought Princeton and Yale together in a game like no other since. Footballs Last Iron Men follows the teams from the hiring of future Hall of Fame coaches Fritz Crisler and Greasy Neale through spring practice to their annual clash on November 17. The Yale Elis, it seemed, had no chance. How those eleven players who never left the game stunned Princeton 7 to 0 is a chapter in football history. It was an era of 165 pound linemen, quarterbacks who called their own plays, and student athletes who earned no special treatment. But the story of Yales Iron Men is also part of a larger history, for it took place during the Great Depression, when millions of struggling Americans found hope in the courage and grit of the team who wouldnt quit
