Description: The Senators may have left town thirty years ago, but Washington, D.C. has never really been without baseball. In fact, since the Washington Nationals were chartered in 1859, the nation's capital has established a long and int-mate relationship with the national pastime that is unrivaled in some ways by any city. Hardball on Capitol Hill is a celebration of this long and rich history.

In 1899 the "Nationals" became the "Senators" and this book surveys the history of the team which boasted some of the greatest names in the game, including Connie Mack, Walter Johnson, and Harmon Killebrew. Despite this, for seventy years Washington was, as the old saw had it, "first in war, first in peace, and last in the American League".

The book examines the unique relationship between presidents and baseball, the long and intense rivalry of the Congressional baseball game, and minor league baseball in the area. It also includes many stories and anecdotes about famous and not so famous people, like Clare Donohoe, the first woman signed for the real "League of Their Own" and John Dowd, the Washington attorney who conducted the investigation of Pete Rose.
