Have you ever wanted to don the Teddy Roosevelt costume and race in the Washington Nationals presidents race? The Washington Nationals Mascot Coordinator is now soliciting applications via the team’s web site.
Applicants must be between 5’7″ and 6’6″ in height, able to run 100 yards wearing a 45 pound costume, and available for “at least” half the Washington Nationals home games. That’s 41 games plus playoffs (Ha! We can dream, right?).
Teddy wannabes should note that you don’t always get to be Teddy. The roles rotate between the staff, so all you lovable losers must also be able to demonstrate the brains of Tom and the honesty of George and Abe, from time to time.
