Tomorrow’s opening day at RFK starts a new chapter in DC’s mostly frustrating baseball history. Take a trip down memory lane, from the "Big Train" (who led the Senators to their only World Series victory) to the Senator’s final game (ending in forfeit after fans stormed the field).

  • Jim Hartley Head of the Washington Baseball Historical Society; author of "Washington's Expansion Senators: 1961-1971"
