Dear Commons Community,
Washington, D.C. has its first World Series Champion in almost one hundred years. It was in 1924, that the then Washington Senators won baseball’s crown. The Nationals with good pitching and clutch hitting showed an amazing amount of grit and determinaon in defeating the Houston Astros. The Series between these two teams was remarkable in many ways but especially for the fact that neither team won a Series game on their home field. It was also remarkable that the Nationals won given that they started the season having lost 31 of their first 55 games. An inning by inning recap courtesy of The New York Times can be found here.
Congratulations to the Nationals and their fans in Washington, D.C.
