(Connie Mack: "There's always next year")

With Baseball season in full swing, I ran across a documentary about baseball from another time - baseball from almost a hundred years ago. During the early part of the 20th century, one of the great figures to emerge in Baseball was Connie Mack, whose career began in the 1800's and who became one of the greatest managers and owners of the game.

This documentary, part of the series "Biographies In Sound" was produced by NBC Radio on April 10, 1956 as a memorial to the man who died only a few months earlier. It features the players and members of the who knew him as well as recordings of Connie Mack giving his views on the game he devoted his entire life to.

A little sports history as an antidote for an otherwise insane weekend.
