    Senators links, sites and photos

    Folks, it's GREAT to see the revival of interest here in the Washington Senators forum!

    Many times when researching (all right, surfing the web), I've come across interesting websites and pages devoted to the Washington Senators. I'm sure many of you have too.

    What I'd like to do here is start a resource where all of us diehard Senators fans can share those wonderful little bits of Senators history that sometimes surprisingly turn up in cyberspace.

    (NOTE:) Please give proper credit to sites and contributors. Also, doublecheck your link AFTER you've posted it. Things in the cyberworld change quickly enough, please make sure your link works after posting. If the site disappears in a week, a month or a year, at least other people had a chance to see it. BUT, if the link never worked, we have absolutely NO IDEA what the heck it was you were linking to.

    Let me start things out:

    From the National Archives, Opening Day, 1969. President Richard Nixon throws out the first pitch while Senators Manager Ted Williams looks on.

    Life Magazine photo archives

    Recently, the photo archives of the old Life magazine have been put on line. Here's a link to a number of Senators photos from the Life archives.

    Getty Images--Griffith Stadium in color.

    A search for Griffith Stadium on this site will turn up some unbelievable color photos of the old park.

    Furthermore, isn't that a "New Senators" pennant? The red one with the realistic drawing of the pitcher?

    Didn't Mantle hit his home run in a night game? I was about eight then, so my memory isn't perfectly clear...

    By the way, those are great color photos from the bleachers at Griffith Stadium. Looks like Number 6 is batting for the Yankees, which was???

    This is a color version of the Long Gone Griffith painting someone attached above. Interesting errors include LA on scoreboard in what is supposed to be a pic of Mickey Mantle at bat before hitting his record home run over the left field bleachers. Yogi Berra is on deck and the pitcher is Chuck Stobbs who gave up the home run. This event occured years before the Angles were added to the American League.

    What year was the stadium renamed?
    District of Columbia Stadium opened in October 1961. The stadium was renamed Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium (referred to locally as simply "RFK") in January 1969, after Robert Kennedy was assassinated in June of 1968.

    Bad link.

    That link didn't seem to work. Try this link and search DC Stadium for the picture and caption.
