1911 Philadelphia Athletics Bench


1910-1913 Athletics - Nicknamed the "White Elephants" by John McGraw, the Athletics began playing in the "brand new" Shibe Park in 1909. The Connie Mack led 1910-1913 Athletics were the American League's first true dynasty and Mack's first "superteam". The 1910-1913 Athletics won three of the four consecutive World Series (1910, 1911 and 1913) they played in, and beginning in 1911 featured the famous "$100,000 Infield" of Eddie Collins, Frank "Home Run" Baker, Stuffy McInnis and Jack Barry along with a starting rotation that boasted Hall of Famers: Charles Albert "Chief" Bender and Eddie "Gettysburg" Plank, along with staff ace thirty game winner Jack Coombs who also was undefeated in World Series play. During that 1910-1913 four span the Athletics posted won-loss records of 1910: 102-48, 1911: 101-50, 1912: 90-62 and 1913: 96-57 for an incredible four year winning percentage of .657.
