  • Former Senators pitcher Bob Chakales passes away

    Bob Chakales played for the Senators from 1955 to 1957, posting a 6-8 record with a 4.58 ERA in 76 games. He was involved in two semi-notable Senators trades. In the first, which took place in 1955, he was traded with Clint Courtney and Johnny Groth for Jim Busby. The second took place in 1957, when he was traded with Dean Stone away from the Senators to the Red Sox for Milt Bolling, Russ Kemmerer and Faye Throneberry.

    He recently passed away.

    I tried to interview him about 6 months ago but his daughter said he was in bad shape back then.
