On Teddy’s birthday, remembering the top presidents race moments of 2011

Thursday is Teddy Roosevelt’s birthday, and what better way to celebrate than to relive some of the top presidents race moments of 2011 (at least according to the Nationals).

The Nats staff has compiled a fun video for Nationals.com highlighting some the more memorable triumphs and mishaps of 2011.

Notably absent are the two races from the final weekend the season in which Jayson Werth tried to take over the presidents race. It was a National story, but one the Nats’ marketing brass would prefer to bury. In fact, the Nationals have never released video of those two races.

New Nationals Uniforms Announced — Just in time for Teddy’s Birthday

New Washington Nationals uniforms for the 2011 season are set to be unveiled at a Nationals Park fashion show next month.

Have we seen the last of Teddy Roosevelt's home racing whites?

Invitations were sent out this week by the Washington Nationals for the VIP event, which will be held at the ball park on the evening of November 10.

Nationals players Tyler Clippard, Ian Desmond, Ivan Rodriguez, Drew Storen, Ryan Zimmerman and Jordan Zimmermann will show off the new uniforms as part of a fashion show for invited guests.
The new jerseys will be available for purchase beginning Thursday, November 11 exclusively at the Nationals Park Team Store, with players on hand to sign autographs beginning at 11:30am.

It’s been two years since the team last announced new Nationals uniforms. At that time, blue alternate jerseys were introduced for the launch of the new ball park, and a script “Washington” replaced the block lettering on the team’s road uniforms.

It’s been speculated that a similar change is in line for the home uniforms, with the block “Nationals” lettering disappearing in favor of script. Personally, I hope it’s not true, having been a fan of the block lettering since it was first introduced as part of the Nationals logo in November of 2004.

The new threads will make a nice birthday present for racing president Teddy Roosevelt, who is set to celebrate his 152nd birthday tomorrow.

New shoes didn’t help Teddy win in 2010. Perhaps another uniform change will…

Washington Nationals’ Teddy Roosevelt to Race in Marine Corp Marathon Sunday

Teddy Roosevelt will run in Sunday's Marine Corp MarathonThe Washington Nationals have announced that racing president Teddy Roosevelt will participate in the 33rd Annual Marine Corps Marathon this Sunday, October 26 at 8:00am.

Sunday’s race happens to be the day before Teddy Roosevelt’s 150th birthday, and if he completes the marathon at his typical racing speed, he might not finish until Monday’s celebration. The team notes that Teddy hopes to show everyone that it is not about winning or losing, but it is about finishing the race.

Teddy will also appear at the Marine Corps Marathon Press Conference tomorrow, Friday, October 24, in support of all race participants.

The Marine Corps Marathon start line is at Route 110 near the Arlington Memorial Bridge Overpass, at 8:00am Sunday. Bring your Teddy Rally Signs!
