A race that was otherwise free of gimmicks got briefly ugly Wednesday night at Nationals Park.
Just after George Washington passed Teddy Roosevelt in the right field corner, Abe Lincoln came from behind and slammed Teddy into the wall, knocking off Roosevelt’s glasses.
The race also marked the first appearance of the “new look” presidents at Nationals Park this season. They first made their appearance after the 2010 all star break, but had not been used in an official race this year. No comment from the team on when or why the “botox” presidents are used.
