I've spent a lot of time getting to know about DC Baseball History since the Expos moved from Montreal...to actually get to see it on film is a new experience for me...I got an email from SnagFilms.com recently letting me know about an addition to their online movie collection (and no they are not paying me to say this), entitled "The Game Comes Home", which begins with the return of baseball to the nation's capital in March of 2005 and goes back to retell the history of major league baseball in Washington, D.C. Here's the description of the film from SnagFilms.com:

"The legendary stories of Washington baseball greats Walter Johnson, Joe Judge, Clark Griffith, The Homestead Grays, Mickey Vernon, Frank Howard and many others are brought to life by stories and recollections from family members, writers, sportscasters and fans."

MASNSports.com's Phil Wood is amongst those who tell the story of the Washington Senators going back to the turn of the century, when the early 1900's Stephen Strasburg, Walter Johnson came to DC and changed the course of the franchise.
