“First in War, First in Peace…and Last in the American League.” Expressions such as this characterized the legend and lore of baseball in the nation’s capital. Author Frederic J. Frommer provides a complete history of baseball in the DC area in his book, You Gotta Have Heart, with chapters including the 1924 World Series championship team and the Homestead Grays, the DC Negro League pennant winners. The book is filled with the voices of current and former players, along with presidents, senators, and political commentators who call the team their own.
