This Date in Washington Senators History – Senators trade Peckinpaugh
1927 The Washington Senators trade shortstop Roger Peckinpaugh to the Chicago White Sox for pitchers Leo Mangum and Sloppy Thurston. Peckinpaugh, who’s major league career began in 1910 with the Cleveland Naps, spent the 1922-1926 seasons in Washington, including the World Championship season of 1924 and on the pennant winning team of 1925.
Peckinpaugh would play in just 68 games for the White Sox in 1927 and call it a career.
Thurston would pitch 1 season for Washington, posting a 13-13 record with a 4.47 ERA in 28 games. Then he’d disappear from the major league scene until he’d resurface with the Brooklyn Robins in 1930.
Mangum would never play for the Senators-he’d make it into 1 game for the New York Giants in 1928 and wouldn’t return to the majors until 1932 when he’d be on the roster of the Boston Braves for 4 seasons.

One Game Wonder Gerry Schoen was drafted by the Senators in 1966. He’d make his major league debut and departure on September 14th of 1968 when he’d pitch in 1 game, going 3 and 2/3 rds innings, giving up 6 hits, 3 runs and 1 walk, being charged with the loss and taking with him an ERA of 7.36.
After the season, Schoen would be drafted by the expansion Seattle Pilots and traded to the Baltimore Orioles in April of 1969, however his trip to the Senators Coffee Shop would remain his only major league appearance.
