Al Schacht & Nick Altrock at MLB Opening game in Griffith Stadium in Washington D.C., 1924

Before baseball had mascots, they had Nick Altrock and Al Schacht. Here they are seen joining in on the dance of women who seem to be students of Isadora Duncan’s way of dancing in lithe, graceful movements.
The dance is still popular today! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fqtK6zgLong

The photo is dated 6/25/1924 on LoC which means that day the Washington Senators played against the New York Yankees. The Senators won the game, pictured here http://cdn.loc.gov/service/pnp/npcc/11600/11659.... Spot Nick Altrock who’s part of the team. :)

Later in October the Washington Senators went on to win the 1924 American League game against New York Yankees.
