Video: Abe Lincoln as Batman knocks out Teddy Roosevelt’s Bane

Abe Lincoln as Batman The Dark KnightTeddy Abe Bane Batman Dark KnightYes, you read that correctly. With the highly anticipated Batman movie The Dark Knight Rises opening in theaters Friday, Nationals racing presidents Teddy Roosevelt and Abe Lincoln took the field Wednesday night dressed as Batman comics villain Bane and the Dark Knight himself, respectively.

Roosevelt jumped out to a big lead, with Abe bringing up the rear. As the finish line approached, Teddy/Bane turned to knock out George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, but Lincoln/Batman caught up to Teddy and took him down, leaving Jefferson with an open path to victory.

The mascot team has a history of saluting popular culture with the presidents race. Wednesday’s movie tie-in led some in the stands and on Twitter wonder whether the Nationals have begun selling presidents race product placements, but rest assured no sponsor would pay for costumes this bad.
