Video: Washington turns on Jefferson in the outfield

It was Emancipation Day Monday, and followers of the Washington Nationals presidents race were calling on Twitter for an easy commemorative victory for Abraham Lincoln.

It took a little unexpected help from two slave owners to make it happen.

After jumping to an early lead, George Washington turned around on the warning track and plowed right into Thomas Jefferson, knocking him into the outfield wall and leaving both on the ground.

With George and Tom out of the way, the Great Emancipator sprinted past Roosevelt for the win.
