Washington World Series Notes

October 25, 2019

This is the fourth time a Washington D.C. team is in the World Series and the first time since 1933.

The other three times, the “D.C.” representative was the Washington Senators, who are now the Minnesota Twins.

In that last Washington D.C. World Series appearance in ’33, the great Mel Ott, who hit 511 big league home runs, led the New York Giants to victory in 5 games.

Washington’s lone baseball crown to date was won by the Senators in a thrilling 7 game series vs the Giants in 1924.

The next season the Pittsburgh Pirates won in another great 7 game Fall Classic vs the Senators.
