Video: Teddy Roosevelt avoids disqualification by losing

Nationals racing president Teddy Roosevelt cuts the outfield cornerRacing President Thomas Jefferson beats Teddy RooseveltThe 34,821 fans who packed Nationals Park Saturday night got an unexpected thrill during the 4th inning presidents race, as 426-time loser Teddy Roosevelt made an exciting late charge after emerging last out of the starting gate.

Though Teddy barely failed to catch front-runner Thomas Jefferson, the exciting charge by Teddy got the crowd on its feet.

What most of Teddy’s fans in the stands failed to notice was that Teddy had gained much of his momentum by cutting the right field corner. Had he taken the tape, he likely would have faced disqualification.
