During the pandemic, the Washington Nationals racing presidents held a race for most home games, staged in the neighborhood outside the stadium. These were the results, as best we could gather them, for the 2020 season. I stopped attempting to track the standings after 2020. I will continue to maintain the archive of blog posts and presidents race history here. You can read about my decision to stop blogging here, and continue to engage with me on Nats Twitter.

2020 Presidents Race Highlights
Teddy Roosevelt entered the 2020 season as world champion, and all eyes were back on the Bull Moose after a season in which his personal trajectory mirrored that of the Nationals. Teddy tied with Abe Lincoln in a shortened 2020 MLB season that was played without fans in the stands due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Washington Nationals racing presidents did hold a race for most home games, staged in the neighborhood outside the stadium.
*Unfortunately, the standings MAY be incomplete because we could not witness the races in person during the pandemic, and the team did not display the results on the out-of-town scoreboard as they do during normal season. We’ve shared all of those that the Nats shared via social media, and others reported from people inside the stadium.
