After missing the first four races of the homestand, Teddy Roosevelt teased the crowd in his return to action today at Nationals Park.
When Saturday’s presidents race began, Teddy was nowhere to be seen, but after Tom, George, and Abe had taken the field, Teddy appeared from the centerfield gate and drew a roar from the crowd as he put on a burst of speed to overtake his racing president foes.
It looked as if TR was about to celebrate his return by putting his losing streak behind him, but the excitement of the moment was apparently too much.
When he reached his cheering section along the first base line, #26 stopped to share in the excitement, and was soon passed by the other presidents. Of course, opportunistic Abe was positioned to mop things up.
