The Nationals racing presidents made an appearance at the ESPN “up fronts” on Tuesday in New York City, joining executives on Broadway’s Minskoff Theater stage for the network’s annual gathering of media buyers.
The annual presentation has evolved over the years into a multimedia show filled with network personalities.
The Disney-owned network unveiled a redesigned set for its flagship SportsCenter show, and revealed that racing president Teddy Roosevelt would soon appear in the show’s iconic TV commercials.
The Nats’ famous mascots then scampered on stage as part of a scripted gag, and posed for photos with attendees.
Teddy’s Sportcenter ad was shot last week at ESPN headquarters, and should appear on the air this summer.

The Nats road trip did not get off to a great start this weekend, but that didn’t seem to bother racing president Teddy Roosevelt.
With the team in California dropping a series to the As, the original Rough Rider was back in DC Saturday night at Stroga in Adams Morgan, getting down on the dance floor to Miley Cyrus.

After taking the first race of the homestand in the rain Monday night, Teddy Roosevelt looked well positioned to make a run for first place in the standings, but Abe Lincoln turned it up a notch to take the last two races of the short series on Tuesday and Wednesday, nosing out William Howard Taft then Thomas Jefferson to widen his lead before the break.
The presidents race returns May 16th when the next homestand begins.

The pouring rain wasn’t the only hurdle facing the racing presidents during the fourth inning Friday night at Nationals Park.
As the race began, the team’s “Secret Service” had set up hurdles in the form of folding tables in foul territory along the first base line.
The race was tight approaching the tables, but as his fellow presidents tumbled into the obstacle, the Rough Rider took a beautiful leap over the tables and stuck a clean landing that carried him to victory.

The Nationals racing presidents were decked out in their Sunday finest for the final game of the team’s homestand this afternoon at Nationals Park, but with the sun shining on a beautiful April afternoon, they removed their jackets and ties and switched to Hawaiian shirts for the fourth inning race.
With 34,873 cheering fans on hand, Teddy Roosevelt pulled away for his fourth victory of the young season.

The Nats racing presidents chased the rain away Friday night by trotting out their Hawaiian Shirts, and decided to keep it away Saturday afternoon by wearing them again.
With Lavar Arrington nowhere to be seen, Abe Lincoln jumped out of the starting gate in the fourth inning and led the presidents race wire to wire. It was a surprisingly clean performance to match the efficiency of Nats starter Tanner Roark, who raced through the Padres lineup for a complete game 3-hitter.
