Nationals ‘Turn Back the Clock’ to Honor 1924 Washington Senators

WHAT:     The Washington Nationals will pay tribute to the 1924 Washington Senators (also referred to as the Nationals at the time) when they host Turn Back the Clock Night presented by WB Mason during their game against the San Francisco Giants (then known as the New York Giants) on Thursday, July 5. 

Both teams will wear 1924 replica jerseys, while the grounds crew will be dressed in full 1920’s attire and gameday staff will don newsie caps and skimmer hats.
