The Senators Forfeit Their Finale

On September 30, 1971, the Washington Senators played their last game in Washington (before they moved to Texas and became the Rangers). This ticket is from that last game, in which the Senators, leading 7-5 with two outs in the ninth inning, forfeited the game because 14,460 mostly rowdy fans surged onto the playing field, tearing it up, before the game had ended.
