After a 4-game absence from the Washington Nationals presidents race, Teddy Roosevelt today confirmed that he’ll be back in the race for today’s 1:05pm start vs. the Atlanta Braves at Nationals Park.
The Nationals had reported that Teddy was recuperating from a hamstring injury suffered during the team’s last homestand, though rumors suggested that the problem was in Teddy’s head. In confirming his return today, Teddy stuck to the story. “Hamstring…was day to day”, he wrote. “Thats my story and I’m sticking to it.”
Meanwhile Abe Lincoln ran away with last night’s race, jumping into the stands afterward to exchange high-fives with fans along the first base line.
