A crowd of 21,960 were rewarded with a great ball game after Monday evening’s thunderstorm as the Nationals’ held their Dollar Monday promotion, in which outfield tickets were available for a dollar, plus $1.00 parking and $1.00 hot dogs, peanuts, and popcorn available in the park.
The cheap treats were such an attraction that Teddy Roosevelt managed to miss the 4th inning presidents race. When George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Abraham Lincoln ran out from the centerfield gate, Teddy was spotted standing in line at the Nats Dogs stand.
Jefferson pulled away for the win, plowing into the GEICO Gecko at the finish line.
