Harrisburg Senators

From BR Bullpen

Jump to: navigation, search

May have also been called the Harrisburg Ponies in 1911

In 1952 the Senators attempted to sign Eleanor Engle as a shortstop. The 24 year old stenographer worked out with the club on June 22. George Trautman then made a ruling against signing women players.

The present Harrisburg Senators are one of several teams over the years to share the name. They joined the AA Eastern League in 1987 as a Pittsburgh Pirates farm club and are currently an affiliate of the Washington Nationals. The Senators won the league championship for the first time in 1987, won it again in 1993, and from 1996 to 1999, they captured four consecutive titles. For their entire existence, they have played their home games at Metro Bank Park (which was called RiverSide Stadium prior to 2004, and Commerce Bank Park from 2004 to 2009).
