Teddy plays Santa once again for Christmas in July

The Washington Nationals wrapped up their homestand and their annual Christmas in July event on Sunday at Nationals Park, with the U.S. Marines Corps Reserves on hand all weekend collecting toys for the Toys for Tots Foundation.

Teddy Roosevelt appeared to have a gift in store for his fans as well, bolting out of the centerfield gate for the 4th inning presidents race, and staking a huge lead while wearing a Santa hat.

But Teddy failed to deliver the gift of victory, instead stopping along the first baseline to pass out presents for fans in the stands. He never finished the race.

George Washington surprised the field by winning his third race in a row, ensuring that the fellow racing presidents Thomas Jefferson and Abe Lincoln will remain deadlocked atop the Nationals presidents race standings through the All Star break and the road trip that follows.
