Segways are no help to Teddy in presidents race

The Washington Nationals are pulling out all the stops for the final week of the home season, with a promotional schedule filled with special events and fan giveaways.

Presidents race riding segways at Washington Nationals gameToday at Nationals Park, the team upped the ante for the presidents race as well, putting all four of the racing presidents on Segway personal transporters for the last day game of the season.

Teddy Roosevelt pulled out first and took and early lead, followed closely by Thomas Jefferson and Abe Lincoln. With the Segways acting as natural speed-equalizers, it was Teddy’s race to lose, but he lost control of his segway at the outfield turn, and started spinning in circles. Tom beat Abe to the finish line to take his first presidents race victory since August.

Perhaps Teddy needs to take Segway lessons from general manager Jim Bowden, who rides a Nationals logo-covered Segway around the team’s spring training fields in Viera, Florida.

After a day off Monday, the Nationals will host the Florida Marlins for the final home series of the season starting Tuesday night.
