We are guaranteed to play postseason baseball after last night’s win over the Dodgers. Our magic number to win the National League East is down to eight games. Let’s see some #NATITUDE from GoDCers and pride in our baseball team!

Along those lines, here are two great films from the last time out team was in the World Series. These are from 1933 when the Senators played the New York Giants, sadly, losing in five games (two in extra innings). By the way, Game 5 of the World Series was the last postseason game played in this city … so you can see why last night’s win was so important.

The video below is a short film clip from the History Channel featuring a Fred Schulte home run and Mel Ott’s blast.
