            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.

                              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. h

                              Great photos, Brownie31!!! Thanks again.
