Information

The Oakland Athletics, often shortened to A's, are a Major League Baseball (MLB) team based in Oakland, Calif., playing home games at Oakland Coliseum.

The A's are one of the eight original American League franchises, founded as the Philadelphia A's in 1901.

Connie Mack was the Philadelphia A's original manager and a part owner along with Benjamin Shibe. Mack acquired Shibe's stake in 1921.

He was the team's manager and general manager until stepping down after the 1950 season -- at the age of 87.
