Presidents race on bicycles to kick off final homestand of the season

The Washington Nationals returned to town Monday night for their final homestand of the season, and while the Nationals have guaranteed their spot at the bottom of the National League East standings, the race to see who will win the 2010 presidents race crown remains tight to the finish.

Nationals Racing Presidents on BicyclesThis homestand marks the finish to Fan Appreciation Month at Nationals Park, as the team has lined up a slew of promotions and giveaways for the Nationals Park faithful who head out to see the team one last time this season.

The racing presidents did their part to kick things off with a stunt we hadn’t seen before. In Monday’s 4th inning, they made a dramatic appearance
aboard red bicycles.

The stunt was in recognition of Capital Bikeshare, a new bicycle sharing service with 110 locations throughout Washington, DC. Capital Bikeshare employees were in attendance at Nationals Park Monday night, after celebrating their inaugural ride on Sunday to launch the new service.

With just ten home games to go, George Washington kept it interesting by pulling away to take another victory, and close within three games of 2-time defending champion Abraham Lincoln in the standings.
