The Washington Nationals at Griffith Stadium

Griffith Field

Fans, by ballot, decided their club was to be called the Nationals instead of the Senators. The only trouble with the vote was that its result was not binding on headline writers. Therefore, the Washington club still was referred to as the Senators, as well as the Nats and the Griffs, the latter nickname being derived from the name of owner Clark Calvin Griffith, the Old Fox.
