Over 36,000 loyal fans battled the heat to pack Nationals Park Thursday as the Nats hosted a rare weekday afternoon game vs. the New York Mets.
Unfortunately, the stifling heat had little apparent effect on Teddy Roosevelt’s appetite.
The Bull Moose held a big lead as he rounded the outfield corner, but a fan in a Mets shirt held up a sign near the finish line that proved his undoing.
The promise of “Free Apple Pie” was enough to pull Teddy off course, and Thomas Jefferson raced past for the victory.
