Washington Title Teams Opening Game Notes

July 24, 2020

Before last season, only one Washington D.C. baseball team had won a World Series.

That team, the Senators, won it all in 1924 and won the pennant in 1925.

They opened their season after the title, as the Nationals did last night, with a loss to the New York Yankees, scoring just one run. That time (1925), the D.C. team was on the road, losing (5-1) at Yankee Stadium.

The ’25 Senators, again as defending champions, also had their home opener vs the Yankees. This time, behind the great pitcher, Walter Johnson, the Senators won (10-1).
