Notre Dame graduate Hannan's 254 strikeouts (in only 196 innings) in his first pro season led the New York-Penn League in 1961, but he was always plagued by control problems. Taken from the Red Sox organization by the Senators in the second expansion draft, his best year was 1968, when he went 10-6 for the 65-96 Washington team. The lifetime .091 hitter struck out in 13 consecutive at-bats in 1968, an AL record. Hannan was a player representative, and his master's thesis on the Major League pension plan was used by Marvin Miller to acquaint himself with baseball's benefit system. Hannan became a stockbroker in the Washington area. (CG)
July 8, 1966: In New York, the Senators win the opener, 76, then blow a 4-run lead in the nitecap to lose, 75. Mickey Mantle is 5-for-8 in DH, including a homer in each game. The 2nd homer, off Jim Hannan, is a 461 foot sky shot over the monuments into the CF bleachers. Mick follows with a sure double in the 5th but tears a hamstring muscle rounding first and will be sidelined for two weeks.

May 2, 1967: Washington and Kansas City split a pair, each by 10 scores. Pete Richert is the winner for Washington in the opener, beat Lew Krausse. Catfish Hunter returns the compliment, topping Jim Hannan in game 2.

August 13, 1968: Pitching seven 2/3 innings, Tom Hall gains his first ML win as the Twins beat the Senators, 84. Washington's Jim Hannan (7-3) takes the loss and doesn't help himself at bat, striking out for the 13th straight time since July 24.

September 19, 1970: Boston's Billy Conigliaro connects for a 4th inning home run off Washington's Jim Hannan, and in the 7th frame, brother Tony Conigliaro wallops a solo shot off Joe Grzenda. The Red Sox win 113 after taking the first game, 73. The brothers also homered in the same game on July 4. Billy will end the year with 18 home runs, while Tony will connect for 36. Frank Howard is frustrated with five strikeouts in game 1.
