Rare Film: Washington Senators Win the 1924 World Series

The Washington Nationals and the Houston Astros will play Game One of the World Series tonight in Houston. Check out this rare footage, found in a garage, of the Washington Senators winning the 1924 World Series over the New York Giants in a Game Seven that went 12 innings!

This film is now part of the Library’s collections. Remember, the Library of Congress is the Nation’s Library, but blog authors do have opinions. Go Nats! Stay in the fight! Here’s hoping for a great Series.

    This was wonderful. It should be widely shared.

    Thanks for sharing this. I’m a lifelong D.C. baseball fan. I revere Walter Johnson, perhaps in small part because I went to Walter Johnson High School (class of 1974).
