Article Photos: Nats hope to repeat feat of '24 DC baseball champs 4/12

  In this Oct. 1924 photo provided by the Library of Congress, Elsie Tydings waits at a ticket window, as she became the first person to purchase a ticket for a World Series baseball game in the nation's capital. The Washington Senators defeated the New York Giants in that year's series. Like this year's Washington Nationals, the 1924 World Series champion Washington Senators generated excitement in a city starved for a baseball winner. The Nats will begin their quest for the city's second championship when the playoffs begin this weekend. (AP Photo/Library of Congress)
