    Wednesday, June 23, 1954 Comiskey Park Chicago: Manager Bucky Harris of the Washington Senators readies seventeen year old Harmon Killebrew for his major league debut. Killebrew, a $50,000.00 "Bonus Baby", and the Senators would lose 8-6 to the White Sox. (Corbis)

      Subbing For The Chief!

          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.
            "For the Washington Senators, the worst time of the year is the baseball season." Roger Kahn

              Thanks! It is quite unusual.

                    Vice President Thomas Marshall substitutes for his boss, President Woodrow Wilson, throwing out the first pitch of the season with Washington Manager Clark Griffith looking on. This photo probably dates from either 1919, when Wilson was tied up in the Versailles Peace Conference, or 1920 when he had been incapacitated by a stroke. (Corbis)

                          Bobo Newsom fun facts-

                          Louis Norman (Bobo) Newsom's career spanned from 1929 through 1953 although he didn't appear in the major leagues in 1931, 1949, 1950 or 1951.

                          The well travelled Newsome played for Brooklyn (twice), the Chicago Cubs, the St. Louis Browns (on three seperate occasions), the Washington Senators (five seperate stints), Boston Red Sox, Detroit Tigers, Philadelphia Athletics (twice) the New York Yankees and the New York Giants.

                          Bobo is quoted as having said "I played for Washington five different times. That beat Franklin Delano Roosevelt's record. He was only elected four times."

                          Bobo is the first major league player to have worn the number "00" during his fourth stint with the Senators in 1946/1947.

                            I believe that I read somewhere that Newsome is the only person to pitch to both Babe Ruth and Mickey Mantle!

                              Monday, April 8, 1963 DC Stadium, Washington DC: President John F. Kennedy and other important political figures such as Senator Hubert H. Humphrey watch a foul come into the stands as Mickey Vernon's Senators lose 3-1 to the Baltimore Orioles. Sadly, this would be JFK's final season opener. (Corbis)
