‘Racing Presidents’ A Tradition At Nationals Park [VIDEO]
Last week, my wife and I were in Washington, D.C., and of course a must stop was a Washington Nationals game (which they lost to St. Louis by one run). Part of the tradition at Nationals Park is the “Racing Presidents”, where mascot Presidents Washington, Lincoln, Jefferson, and Teddy Roosevelt race around the ballpark between innings. And Teddy always loses, except one time.
We really got into cheering for the Presidents, and to date, Teddy has only one once. And here’s that thrilling finish on October 3, 2012.
