Connie Mack's Sportsman's Creed
I promise to play the game to the best of my ability at all times.
I will always play to win. But if I lose I will never look for excuses which would detract from my opponent's victory.
I will always abide by the rules of the game on the diamond as well as in my daily life.
I will never gloat in victory or pity myself in defeat.
I will judge a teammate as an individual and never on the basis of his race or religion.
