The bear cub that attacked Teddy Roosevelt returned to Nationals Park Sunday afternoon, but ran into a buzz saw known as the Nats’ grounds crew.
“LarQ the Bear” (a reference to the much maligned Cubs mascot Clark the Bear) was prepared to disrupt the fourth inning race once again when the Nationals grounds crew emerged from the sidelines and pummeled the mascot into the ground.
That left Teddy Roosevelt with a clear shot at the finish line, but rather than grab the victory for himself, the Bull Moose decided instead to get into the act, jumping on the bear cub himself and egging on the crowd as William Howard Taft raced by for the win.

The beating that Gio Gonzalez and the Washington Nationals put on the Chicago Cubs Saturday afternoon was nothing compared to the grizzly scene that played out in the fourth inning presidents race at Nationals Park.
With Teddy Roosevelt in the early lead, an orange, oversized bear cub came running from the home bullpen and shoved the Rough Rider to the ground, but the other presidents exacted revenge on Teddy’s behalf, as George Washington finished the job with a body slam.
Abe and Tom pushed and shoved to the finish line, and Abe eked out the victory to extend his lead over Teddy in the season standings.
