1960 Washington Senators season

Template:MLB yearly infobox-pre1969 The 1960 Washington Senators won 73 games, lost 81, and finished in fifth place in the American League. They were managed by Cookie Lavagetto and played home games at Griffith Stadium. This was their final season in Washington, as they moved to Minnesota and became the Twins in 1961, which they have been named ever since. The departure meant lights out for Griffith Stadium, as it was demolished after the second Washington Senators franchise played its inaugural season there.

Notable transactions

Relocation to Minnesota

After an early flirtation with San Francisco, by 1957 Calvin Griffith was courting Minneapolis-St. Paul, a prolonged process that resulted in him rejecting the Twin Cities' first offer[1] before agreeing to relocate. The American League opposed the move at first, but in 1960 a deal was reached: The Senators would move and would be replaced with an expansion Senators team for 1961. The old Washington Senators became the Minnesota Twins.
