    Man, that coat is something else. And that bat looks exceptionally long, too.

    I always wonder... are the "die-hard" Senators fans also fans of the new Washington Nationals?

    The coat was probably made to order. After all, Griffith was manager and owner! Quite a bat too!

    Saturday, October 8, 1932 Griffith Stadium Washington DC: Like most big league ball parks, Griffith Stadium switched to football when the baseball season ended. Here is action from the 1932 Alabama-George Washington game showing John "Hurri" Cain of Alabama with the ball. Cain would score all four touchdowns as the Crimson Tide defeated the Colonials 28-6. The crowd of 26,000 was the largest up to that time to see a football game in Washington, DC. (Corbis)

    Denny was bad for Senators fans. Let's hope this Senator doesn't affect the whole nation.

    Sign of the times: Bucky may be the only person in the picture without a hat on.

    The Baltimore Orioles, in only their second season in Baltimore, would finish at 57-97 in seventh place. The Senators record in 1954 was 66-88. Their 1955 season record marked an additional 13 losses.

    Great photos, Brownie31!!! Thanks again.

    The Washington Senators inaugurate spring training in 1936. Much like college football teams open their games today!

    1936 Senators information...

    Another great (and unusual) photo, Brownie31!

    The 1936 Senators would finish in fourth place with a 82-71 record, and a .536 winning percentage. The New York Yankees (Who else? ) would win the pennant with a 102-51 record and .667 winning percentage.

    Some highlights of the season: The Senators would lead the American League in stolen bases (104), triples (84) and would tie with the Cleveland Indians for fewest home runs allowed (73). Unfortunately, the Senators would only hit 62 homers, with 1st baseman Joe Kuehl (16) and outfielder John Stone (15) accounting for exactly half of the home runs hit.

    Playing their home games in expansive Griffith Stadium helps account for the league lead in triples and the absence of home runs.
