Description by

"A compelling account of the A's that marvelously conveys an old-time era!" - The Philadelphia Inquirer

Bill Campbell narrates this history of the city's long-lost big league baseball team. Using vintage photographs, archival footage and commentary from players Eddie Joost, Gus Zernial and Joe Astroth, writer/producer James Rosin recalls the club's years in the City of Brotherly Love (1901-1954) before their move to Kansas City and eventual move to Oakland. Featured are the Athletic's eight World Series appearances, their legendary manager Connie Mack and Hall of Famers Lefty Grove, Jimmy Foxx, Mickey Cochrane and Al Simmons. - TV Guide

Product Description:

From 1901 to 1054, Philadelphia's professional baseball team was the Athletics. This documentary examines those five decades of winning baseball that included eight trips to the World Series and stints on the club from such legends as Jimmy Foxx, Al Simmons, and Mickey Cochrane as well as famed manager Connie Mack.
