Walter Johnson, Baseball Pitching

Walter Johnson ("Barney" and "The Big Train" was a baseball pitcher for the Washington Senators from 1907 - 1927. Here, he's showing President Coolidge how to throw a curve ball. (You can see the movement of the ball.) On the other side of President Coolidge is Bucky Harris, a second baseman for the Washington Senators who later became a manager and was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame. Perhaps the other men are also players for the Washington Senators?
