One of the most popular during-the-game entertainment stunts in all of baseball is the “racing presidents” that has become a tradition at Nats Park. Unfortunately, Teddy Roosevelt hardly ever wins.

Even with the addition of a fifth racing president last year Teddy seldom wins, but he remains hugely popular with the fans. Here is a cute video, made at least 2 years ago, about Teddy’s exploits:
