A Whole New Ballgame: The 1969 Washington Senators 50th Anniversary
Despite a long and uneven history, Major League Baseball’s Washington franchises have hardly been the stuff of legend. However, in 1969, when new owner Bob Short coaxed batting legend and rookie manager Ted Williams out of retirement, these annual no-names climbed out of the depths and straight into the hearts of Washington baseball fans starving for a winner. Led by The Capital Punisher Frank Howard, whose tape-measure home runs sometimes seemed like optical illusions, the Senators simply won ball games with a determination rarely seen in D.C. environs. A Whole New Ballgame showcases the 1969 Senators’ magical season, complete with updated player bios, new photographs, stats, game action, and stories. Foreword by Dick Bosman.

You Gotta Have Heart: A History of Washington Baseball from 1859 to the 2012 National League East
“First in War, First in Peace . . . and Last in the American League.” Expressions such as this characterized the legend and lore of baseball in the nation's capital, from the pioneering Washington Nationals of 1859 to the Washington Senators, whose ignominious departure in 1971 left Washingtonians bereft of the national pastime for thirty-three years. This reflective book gives the complete history of the game in the D.C. area, including the 1924 World Series championship team and the Homestead Grays, the perennial Negro League pennant winners from the late 1930s to the mid-1940s who consistently outplayed the Senators. New chapters describe the present-day Nationals, who, in 2012, won the National League East led by the arms of Gio Gonzalez and Stephen Strasburg and the bats of Ryan Zimmerman, Adam LaRoche and rookie Bryce Harper. The book is filled with the voices of current and former players, along with presidents, senators, and political commentators who call the team their own.

The Washington Senators (Writing
A facsimile edition of the celebrated 1954 history of the Senators Shirley Povich’s history of the Washington Senators originally appeared in 1954 as part of the popular series of major league team histories published by G. P. Putnam. With their colorful prose and delightful narratives, the Putnam books have been described as the Cadillac of the genre and have become prized collectibles for baseball readers and historians. One of the American League’s eight charter franchises, the club was founded in Washington, D.C., in 1901 as the Washington Senators. In 1905 the team changed its name to the Washington Nationals. However, fans and newspapers persisted in using the “Senators” nickname, and over time the use of “Nationals” faded and “Senators” reemerged as the team’s official name. In their first nine seasons the Senators finished last four times and didn’t climb above sixth place until 1912. The major catalysts in their rise were the ascendance to greatness of Walter Johnson, who emerged in 1910 as the American League’s best pitcher, and the hiring of Clark Griffith as manager in 1912. Griffith pioneered in the use of relief pitchers and in signing Caribbean talent. Although the team’s new respectability faded, the 1924 hiring of twenty seven-year-old B...

The Class of '93: How One Baseball Team Wrecked An Entire
There have been thousands of minor league baseball teams since the start of the 20th century. Which one was the best ever, well, that always has been open to debate. There is one team that needs to be included in any argument. That team would be the 1993 Harrisburg Senators, a collection of top prospects the talent-rich Montreal Expos put together in one place at one time to see what would happen. Would they dominate the Eastern League, a Class AA league annually filled with some of baseball’s best prospects? Or would they collapse under the weight of their egos and others’ expectations? No one truly knew coming out of spring training that season. The game’s history, regardless of level, has been loaded with dream teams that inexplicably turned into nightmares before season’s end. The 1993 Harrisburg Senators were such a dream team, a team that trashed an entire league on its way to a championship. The Class of ’93 is their story, of how a bunch of alpha males checked their egos at the clubhouse door and turned their own expectations into reality.

Senators Heroes: Remembering the Washington Senators Who Helped Make the 1960s Baseball's Real Golden
These were the heroes who owned the summers of the 1960s. Pete Richert and Frank Howard. Chuck Hinton and Dick Bosman. Don Lock and Dick Donovan. Eddie Brinkman and Claude Osteen. During the summers of the 1960s, the heroes of Washington D.C. wore Senators uniforms. On their best days (which were, admittedly, rare), they were entertaining and inspiring. They smote hated rivals and sent their best to the All-Star game, in the decade when that mid-summer classic moved under the lights … and into prime time. On their worst days, these Senators heroes broke our hearts, squandering late-inning leads and pre-season hopes … but they never lost our devotion. They were the heroes of our youth. Now their stories are collected in Senators Heroes: Remembering the Washington Senators Who Helped Make the 1960s Baseball’s Real Golden Age. The book profiles the best (and a few of the worst) of the Washington Senators of the 1960s. In all, there are 62 profiles of the infielders, outfielders, catchers and pitchers who played for the Washington Senators in the 1960s. Do you remember … The hard-throwing right-hander who struck out 21 batters in a single game? (page 73) The Gold Glove shortstop who lasted 15 years in the majors … but never had a batting average higher than .266? (page 13) ...

Roy Sievers: "The Sweetest Right Handed Swing" in 1950s
Few players in the history of baseball suffered as many professional setbacks as Roy Sievers (1926-2017). After an award winning rookie season in 1949, he endured a year and a half-long slump, a nearly career-ending injury and a major position change--all from 1950 through 1953. Traded in 1954, he prevailed and became one of the most feared hitters of the decade, the Washington Senators' home run leader and the biggest gate attraction since Walter Johnson. Drawing on original interviews with Sievers and teammates, this first full-length biography covers the life and career of a first baseman who overcame adversity to restore a dispirited franchise.

Baseball's Greatest Season,
With the possible exception of 2004 no season in the history of baseball has matched 1924 for escalating excitement and emotional investment by fans. It began with observers expecting yet another World Series between the Yankees and the Giants. It ended months later when the Washington Nationals (Senators), making their first Series appearance, grabbed the world championship by scoring the season-ending run on an improbable play in the bottom of the twelfth inning of the seventh game. On the eve of the return of major league baseball to Washington, D.C., Baseball's Greatest Season recovers the memory of the one and only time when the championship of the national pastime resided in the nation's capital.
