McGraw and McGillicuddy

One was pugnacious. The other, almost regal. When John Joseph McGraw took the field, he embraced baseball games as bouts, thus earning his nicknames Mugsy and Little Napoleon. When Cornelius McGillicuddy managed the Philadelphia Athletics, he wore a suit rather than a uniform. They were, certainly, opposites with a respect that ran deeper than the Hudson River.
