WASHINGTON When the Texas Rangers finally made the World Series, there was only one logical reaction from old-time baseball fans in the nations capital.
"First Minnesota, and then Texas. My heavens!" Charlie Brotman said. "Everybody but the real thing is there."
Brotman was the public address announcer for the Washington Senators, who are now making their long overdue debut in baseballs biggest show albeit 39 years and one relocation too late for local supporters.
Now they have the Capitals in hockey. Far more exciting than baseball, in my opinion.
The greatest baseball player ever, period. Ted Williams.
