Abramson, 99, is a lifelong Washingtonian and a longtime baseball fan. Abramson attended a World Series game at Griffith Stadium in 1924, the year Washington won its first and only world championship. Abramson holds a baseball that was signed by some of the old Washington Nationals (including Walter Johnson), as well as some other famous ballplayers, including Babe Ruth and Ty Cobb. His brother, Irving, got the signatures and owned the ball; he shellacked it at one point, and Abramson is still mad about that because it killed the ball's value!(Photo by Sarah L.
