Baseball takes its superstitions seriously, and so apparently, the Washington Nationals will run the fourth inning presidents race in reverse, with George Washington winning, as long as the Nats’ winning streak continues.
The presidents started running in reverse on Thursday in an attempt to break the team’s bad luck. On Saturday, the Nats won their third straight game, and once again, the backwards race winner was George Washington. The presidents wore their patriotic uniforms for the nationally televised game.
If form holds, Sunday’s race to wrap up the homestand will begin on the usual first base finish line. Don’t bet against George.
