Photo Day at D.C. Stadium

Don Zimmer, one of our old Washington Senator's baseball players died earlier this week which prompted me to do some research. I had remembered seeing Zimmer at this Photo Day in old D.C. Stadium on July 18, 1970, but my memory and the "facts" don't seem to jibe. What does jibe is remembering that Tim, Carolyn, and I had gone to see the Senators play the Boston Red Sox. Prince Charles and his sister Princess Anne were at the game setting in a press box and waved to the crowd when introduced. Tim had completed his Freshman year at UN-L and was accepted at Duke. Carolyn was going into her Senior year at Wakefield HS in Arlington, VA. Tim and Carolyn went to several games together that summer. Tim worked at the Patent Office in Crystal City as a GS-2. It was a busy summer with Jon going to Music Camp, and Verlon to active duty training in California with the National Guard. Elaine was working with the Forest Service, and I was with the Soil Conservation Service. We both worked in the South USDA Building in downtown D.C.
