Washington Nationals racing presidents new starting lineNationals presidents race tryoutsNationals Racing President AuditionsIf you’ve ever dreamed of participating in the Washington Nationals’ iconic presidents race, here’s your chance.

The Nats are looking for men and women to take on the roles of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, William Howard Taft, and yes, Theodore Roosevelt for the 2015 Major League Baseball season.

Applications are being accepted at Nationals.com.

Applicants must be at least 5’7” in height and be in good enough physical shape to run 200 yards in the sun wearing a 50-pound costume in approximately 40 seconds or less. Between forty and sixty applicants are typically selected for invitations to audition.

Tryouts this year are closed to the public. In previous seasons, candidates have been asked to race against each other, run a 40-yard dash, dance, and show their celebration skills during the auditions, which are held rain or shine.

For a sense of what’s in store for applicants, check out one of our video chronicles from a few years back:
