Long Gone Griffith
by Bill Purdom
From your field level seat directly behind the third base dugout, you're watching a "fantasy" game between the Senators and the Yankees at the old Washington, DC, ballpark. You can see the bleachers in left, the scoreboard afixed to the towering right field wall and a section of the covered stands down the right field line. That's Mickey Mantle digging in at the plate and Yogi Berra in the on-deck circle for the Bombers. It was at Griffith, of course, that Mantle launched a monstrous, 565-foot home run off southpaw Chuck Stobbs on April 17, 1953. Two eras of Senators baseball are brought together here; the block "W" on the third baseman's uniform commemorating the franchise that moved to Minnesota, and the pennant in the foreground bringing to mind the club that moved to Texas.
