This Date in Washington Senators History
A trio of birthdays to report on this Christmas Eve-two “Senators Short Timers” and a “One Game Wonder” who collectively account for 25 games played in a Washington uniform are all we find in our Christmas stocking…
Gregorio Evelio Hernandez B Dec. 24, 1931 Still Living
Evelio Hernandez, another pitcher hailing from Cuba, made his debut with the Senators in mid-September of 1956. Pitching in 4 games, he’d compile a 1-1 record with a 4.76 ERA.
Returning with the Senators in 1957, Hernandez would pitch in 14 games, making his last appearance in late June.
Owen Franklin Scheetz B Dec. 24, 1913 D Sep. 28, 1994
Single Season Senator Owen Scheetz would be on the Senators roster for 18 days in April and May of 1943. Pitching in 6 games, he’d give up 7 runs in 9 innings.
Frank Adam Trechock B Dec. 24, 1915 D Jan. 16, 1989
One Game Wonder Frank Trechock would have his cup of coffee with the Senators on September 19th of 1937. Playing shortstop, he’d go 2 for 4 at the plate but would also commit 2 errors, giving him a BA of .500 and a fielding percentage of .750.
