The Senators were a woeful American League franchise. The original Senators dating back to 1900 relocated to Minnesota to become the Twins and a "new" Senators were created immediately after. They were also dismal during the 60s and moved to Texas and became the Rangers. The best remembered Senator was hulking Frank Howard who possessed enormous power. He did not merely hit the ball into the stands but crushed it. Howard first came to prominence as Dodger where he was Rookie of the Year. He played 16 seasons overall with his peak seven spent in Washington where he smashed 246 home runs. That is 35 per season in the pitcher dominated 60s. Howard was a four-time All-Star who twice led the league in home runs.
