That other Washington monument

The Washington Nationals making the World Series brings up stories of past Washington baseball glory - the few times that happened.
One of the baseball Washington ball players was Joe Judge.
His talent on the field speaks for itself, but something that makes Joe Judge really special to Washington is the fact that he really embraced the city and adopted it as his home. Originally from New York, he was one of the few Nationals/Senators that stayed in the area after the end of each season. A 1927 article in the Washington Post lists Judge, Bucky Harris, Walter Johnson, Sam Rice and Ossie Bluege as the only players that would winter in D.C. following the baseball season.
