Teddy Roosevelt’s T-shirt Tuesday is right around the corner, and many of you have asked if we’ll be organizing a Roosevelt rooting section at Nationals Park.
It’s a great idea, and so on August 12, we’ll plan to gather before the first pitch at 6:45pm right behind Section 102 on the centerfield plaza. Bring your Teddy Roosevelt signs and wear your Let Teddy Win gear, and we’ll have a little pregame rally for the camera crew. Later, for the big event in the 4th inning, we can gather to cheer close to the presidents race finish line.
For those who haven’t been paying attention, the Nationals are celebrating every Tuesday night home game with “T-Shirt Tuesdays,” where the first 10,000 fans entering Nationals Park receive a free t-shirt. Each Tuesday’s t-shirt has a different theme on the back, and four of the T-Shirt Tuesdays were set aside to celebrate the Nationals racing presidents. So far, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Abe Lincoln have had T-Shirt Tuesdays, and each has won the presidents race on his respective night. Teddy Roosevelt’s big day is next, on August 12. He should have his best effort saved up for the big day.
Plenty of tickets are still available, though with the Mets in town, the best seats are going fast, so order now.
