This schedule is on the side of a milk jug that is very old. If anyone knows a fast way to figure out what year this schedule took place just out of curiousity that would be cool.

    The first night game at Fenway was in 1947. That at least gives you a start date. – jmh Jul 12 '17 at 17:17

    And the old Washington Senators left for Texas in 1971. So your search region is now 1947-1970. A pretty broad range. Best I can do right now. – jmh Jul 12 '17 at 17:26
  • Of course these dates are not consistent with a 100 year old building. The night games make this very intriguing because I can't find mention of night games in 1917 - a 100 years ago. Earliest mention is around 1935 in Cincy. – jmh Jul 12 '17 at 17:32

This was from 1963, based on the schedule and the teams. Thanks to @John for pointing out the range to search in (1947-1970, based on the first night game at Fenway, and the last year the Senators played in Washington).

  • Comments are meant to be transitory on Stack Exchange - it would be great if you could add the hints into your answer to put all the information in one place. – Philip Kendall Jul 12 '17 at 18:20
  • Thanks for the quick responses. 1963 sounds about right. The building was built in 1908 but it could have been swept under there anytime. – Rodeo Thompson Jul 13 '17 at 0:09
  • @Joe Good detective work!! – jmh Jul 13 '17 at 17:00
