Perhaps Teddy knew better than to take the field with the Boston Red Sox.
The Nats set another attendance record Wednesday night as the visiting Red Sox helped draw a record crowd to Nationals Park for the second night in a row.
Boston took the lead for good in the 4th inning, just before George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Abe Lincoln took the field for a very unusual presidents race.
Teddy Roosevelt, on the other hand, appeared only on the outfield scoreboard, where the Rough Rider was holding his own Boston Tea Party, tipping over cases labeled “TEA.”
The other presidents stopped in their tracks to watch Teddy’s antics, but after about ten seconds, Abe Lincoln took off towards the finish line, leaving George and Tom staring at the screen.
Never a one to win graciously, the Great Emancipator celebrated his uncontested victory by dancing as two members of the Nat Pack sprayed fire extinguishers at his feet.
