The 1933 Senators Win the Pennant

The Washington Senators, one of baseball's earliest franchises, sported a very good team from the mid-1920s through the early 1930s with players like Walter Johnson, Goose Goslin, Sam Rice and Joe Cronin. They won the American League pennant and World Series in 1924 and the pennant again in 1925 and 1933. This ball clinched the 1933 pennant for the Senators.
