Picture Of The Day

From time to time this off-season, I am going to be posting up interesting photos from baseball's past. Pictures which give a good sense of the rich history of The Great Game, especially if the subject has to do with Washington. First up--a good one.

Young Washington Senators Slugger Harmon Killebrew sitting near the dugout at Griffith Stadium in Washington, DC signing autographs for young fans in May, 1959. Two Seasons later, The Senators would move to Minnesota and become The Twins. Killebrew would have a Hall Of Fame Career.

Totally off topic here, but Nats320 would surely be must-read internet if Jorge Julio ever actually becomes a National.

ABM--Yes, I would have to believe "The Most Thrilling Closer In The Game" Title would be headed to a Whole New Level. Imagine--"My Boy!" in a Nats Uniform? The ramifications are extraordinary. And ironically funny. Thanks for the link.
