I visited Nationals Park in 2010. Just curious as to how Major League Baseball looked in DC after so many, many, years without a major league team. Now just watching the last out of the ninth inning I realize that they may be at the brink at going deeper in the playoffs than any Washington DC baseball team.
So this is historic, Washington failed as a baseball town, but a trip to the World Series will be unprecedented. 1924 was the last time a Washington Major League Baseball team the Senators played in an won a World Series Game.
The Washington Senators beat the New York Giants.
