Which reminds me that the Washington Senators gave baseball the Texas Rangers and
the Minnesota Twins and there's still
no Washington Senators baseball team.
Calvin Griffith, owner of the Senators, assured a sportswriter that the Senators were staying in Washington "so long as I'm alive." Within the year, that reporter was typing, "Acting posthumously, Calvin Griffith moved the Senators to Minnesota yesterday."
That late 50s Senators team that moved up to Minnesota had some pretty good ballplayers: Killebrew, Pascual, Allison, etc.
