Tommy Taylor was acquired in mid-1924 from Memphis at age 31 to play some third base for the Washington Senators, who went on to win the 1924 American League pennant and the 1924 World Series.
The regular third baseman was 23-year-old Ossie Bluege. Taylor, at 31, was five years younger than Walter Johnson and eight years older than Goose Goslin.
Taylor was hitting .339 with Memphis when the Senators picked him up. The Memphis manager was Johnny Dobbs, who went on to become the president of the Charlotte club and hired Taylor to manage Charlotte in 1934. Taylor went back to Memphis after his time with the Senators, leading the Southern Association in batting average, doubles and RBI in 1926.
