Racing presidents return from Syracuse

The Washington Nationals return from a 10-day road trip tonight to kick off a five game homestand at Nationals Park vs. the Mets and Orioles.

The racing presidents usually get a break while the Nats are on the road, but last week they took to Syracuse, where they held a presidents race during the 5th inning of Stephen Strasburg’s first start for the Syracuse Chiefs. It looked for a time as if Teddy would take the exhibition, but Thomas Jefferson passed him as they raced along the 3rd baseline at Alliance Bank Stadium.

For the two games starting tonight vs. the Mets, the Nationals have released a coupon code for Teddy’s friends: Order at Nationals.com using Coupon Code “TEDDY” (all caps) and get up to 35% off tickets in select seating sections. The coupon is valid for online orders only.

Presidents to race during Stephen Strasburg’s start in Syracuse Wednesday night

The Washington Nationals’ racing presidents will take their show on the road Wednesday for Stephen Strasburg’s second start with the AAA Syracuse Chiefs.

George, Tom, Abe, and Teddy will greet fans at the main gates of Alliance Bank Stadium, then run a presidents race following the 5th inning of the game vs. Norfolk. Nationals Mascot and race judge Screech will also make the trip.

Nats Entertainment Coordinator Tom Davis noted that “sending the Racing Presidents up to Syracuse for a night is another way to let Chiefs fans experience Nationals baseball.”

The game will be carried locally in DC on tape delay by MASN at approximately 10:30pm.
