This Day In Baseball History

Fishing for a quick post while at work minding the phones (and schools are closed), I found a couple cool things that happened on November 22.

In 2004, at a lunch time celebration at Union Station, which includes a protest, the recently relocated Washington National League franchise announces its new name, logo, and colors. Using the official original name of the district's team which used the nickname the Senators from 1901-56, the club clad in red, white, blue, and gold will be known as the Nationals.

Also in 1954, the Pirates purchased a contract from the Dodgers AAA farm club in Montreal.  Dude had a decent career, but it was tragically cut short.  You've probably heard of him.

Here's how we're used to seeing him...
