Klobas: Podcast interview with “Connie Mack” author Norman Macht

From Mark Klobas at the New Books Network on June 28, 2016, with SABR member Norman Macht:

At the start of The Grand Old Man of Baseball: Connie Mack in His Final Years, 1932-1956, the third volume of Norman L. Macht’s biography of baseball legend Connie Mack, the Philadelphia A’s which he owned and managed had just lost the 1931 World Series to the St. Louis Cardinals. Though Mack would run the team for another eighteen seasons, never again would they win a pennant during his tenure.
