On June 15, 1775, the country’s fledgling Continental Congress commissioned George Washington to be commander in chief on the Continental Army.
On Wednesday afternoon at Nationals Park, the Nats racing presidents reenacted the event to commemorate its 241st anniversary.
With Herbert Hoover sitting out, Tom, Abe, Teddy and Bill started the race from the centerfield gate, but they were stopped by George Washington, who emerged from the bullpen dressed in his traditional period costume.
George proceeded to lead his colleagues in a series of military drills, culminating in a trick when he encouraged them to stand on one foot.
As the presidents tried balancing, George took off for the finish line.
