History, Comments, Contributions[edit]

The 1971 Washington Senators played the franchise's last season in Washington, although they weren't last in the league in attendance. The franchise relocated to Texas before the 1972 season and christened themselves the Rangers. There would not be another major league team in Washington until the Washington Nationals started play in 2005.

Jeff Burroughs and Toby Harrah were rookies in 1971 and Frank Howard hit his 350th career home run that year.
