  FILE - In this Sept. 26, 1924, file photo, Walter Johnson, veteran pitching ace of the Washington Senators, poses for a photo. In 1924, there was a national buzz about Johnson, one of baseball's all-time greatest pitchers. 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/File)
