With a sellout crowd on hand for Jayson Werth Garden Gnome night Tuesday at Nationals Park, Teddy Roosevelt enlisted the mischievous magical gnome himself to help take his fourth consecutive presidents race.
Wearing a pointed hat and holding a bat and ball, Jayson Werth’s doppleganger stood still as a statue as Teddy took photos of him on the first base line, but when Roosevelt’s rival presidents approached, the gnome abruptly swung his bat, knocking out all four competitors before returning to his statuesque pose.
As Teddy crossed the finish line, members of the secret service carried the frozen “gnome” off the field.
Full and slo-mo GIFs below in what may be the best video of the year. The whole finish line video, which is also below, is really worth watching.

Wearing a protective mitt apparently borrowed from Bryce Harper, Teddy Roosevelt ambushed his fellow racing presidents at the finish line of Sunday’s presidents race at Nationals Park.
After using the mitt to defeat Sharknado Abe the night before, Teddy tweeted a message of thanks to Bryce Harper. Harper and Ryan Zimmerman have been wearing the mitts when running the bases as they recover from hand injuries.
Here’s the highlight GIF, with slo-mo enhancements. Full sound video below.

For the second straight night, Sharknado returned to Nationals Park, and this time attacked the racing presidents from both directions.
Sharknado 1 met the presidents on the warning track, knocking Teddy back into the pack. Only Abe Lincoln remained on his feet, but then Sharknado 2 arrived from the rear and leveled the Great Emancipator.
Jefferson recovered to his feet and was unchallenged for the win.
