The baseball “lifer” passed away on Nov. 8 at the age of 95. Here’s the NY Times obit, written by Richard Goldstein.

MacPhail published his autobiography — My 9 Innings: An Autobiography of 50 Years in Baseball – in 1989. A new copy goes for about $150 on Amazon.

in 2000, G. Richard McKelvey published The MacPhails : Baseball’s First Family of the Front-Office, which covers the whole MacPhail baseball clan, including his father, Larry.
