Clark Calvin Griffith (November 20, 1869 – October 27, 1955), nicknamed "the Old Fox", was a Major League Baseball pitcher and manager. He owned the Washington Senators from 1920 until his death in 1955, during which time the team went from a World Series champion to perhaps the worst in the League.
