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.

Phil Wood Joins MASN Pre- and Post-Game Team

DCRTV reports that Phil Wood has been hired by the Mid-Atlantic Sports Network to replace Don Baylor as Ray Knight’s back-up on the Nationals pre and postgame shows.

Congratulations, Phil, and may I say this is great news for Nationals fans. Not only does Phil know the game as well as anybody in town, he is actually from the area and is a Nationals fan. Imagine that!

Phil, just promise me you’ll root for Teddy!
