    The 1924 Washington Senators won 92 games, lost 62, and finished in first place in the American League. Fueled by the excitement of winning their first AL pennant, the Senators won the World Series in dramatic fashion, a 12-inning game 7 victory.

    Regular season

    The Senators' offense was led by future Hall of Famer Goose Goslin, who was one of the youngest players on the team. He drove in a league-leading 129 runs. Walter Johnson had another outstanding year, winning the American League pitching triple crown and being voted Most Valuable Player. He anchored a staff that allowed the fewest runs in the league. Reliever Firpo Marberry paced the circuit in saves and games pitched. Manager Bucky Harris, who was also the team's starting second baseman, was the highest paid player on the team, earning $9,000.

    Washington's Bucky Harris scores on his home run in the fourth inning of Game 7 of the 1924 World Series.

    The Senators finally made it into postseason after many years of being the laughingstock of the American League. Behind ace pitcher Walter Johnson, they won the deciding Game 7 in extra innings. The team would get back to the World Series the next year and also in 1933, their last Series while playing in Washington.
