  • Your 1-for-2, Senators Fan 57. Jimmy Piersall did not get the first hit, but Bennie Daniels commited the first error.

    The first Sen do get a hit shared the same name with a Philadelphia A's slugger from the 1930's and 40's. Ironically, that former A's slugger would play a season in Washington in 1943.

        Bob Johnson is correct. He got a two-out single in the 2nd inning off Don Mossi of the Tigers.


        • In 1958, this expansion Nat became the first left handed throwing catcher to play in a ML game since 1905. Who is he?

          • Dale Long

            Since no one has answered this yet, the answer is Dale Long, who caught 2 games for the 1958 Chicago Cubs.

            • Dale Long is correct. Congratulations Aa3rt! You have won a rare, limited edition, 1963 Senators team autographed bat! This bat was used in all 162 games and is like new!

                Sorry to respond to such an old post, but I actually met Lee Maye, after his playing career had ended. This was circa 1977, he was working as a salesman in a men's clothing store in downtown L. A. called Eagleson's. Of course there were 2 Lee May(e)s that played Major League baseball during the 70s, I knew he was Lee Maye with an e, b/c the other Lee May (w/out an e) was still active (playing 1B for Houston, IIRC), and I went to the store during baseball season, so I figured it wasn't him Sorry to hear of Lee Maye's passing
