Video: Nats racing presidents faint in the heat, Teddy Roosevelt perseveres

Racing presidents faintingTeddy Roosevelt wins presidents raceIt was hot enough to fry a pierogie at Nationals Park Friday night, which may be why for the first time since it opened in 2008, the Pittsburgh Pirates arrived in DC for a series but their racing pierogie mascots bowed out.

With the heat index hovering in the triple digits, Herbert Hoover didn’t even make it onto the field for the fourth inning race. Then sturdy George Washington, who took an early lead, fainted on the warning track.

One by one the racing presidents went down, until Teddy Roosevelt, who loved the tropics and preached about living “the strenuous life,” was the only man left standing.
