President Franklin D. Roosevelt threw out the ceremonial first pitch at Griffith Stadium before Game 3 of the 1933 World Series between Washington and the New York Giants as Senators manager Joe Cronin (third from right) and New York counterpart Bill Terry (second from right) look on. The Fall Classic was a national obsession, as evidenced by a scoreboard outside a building in Norfolk, Va., that tracked the developments of Game 1. The Giants won the World Series 4-1, and it would be 79 years before Washington would experience postseason baseball again. (Associated Press)
