Saturday was Star Wars Day at Nationals Park, and after just three seasons, a couple of traditions have clearly been established: the fourth inning presidents race will end in an epic lightsaber battle, and Thomas Jefferson will be in drag.
Teddy Roosevelt (Chewbacca) and Abe Lincoln (Finn) jumped out to an early lead before being clotheslined by Jabba the Hut, who had emerged from the Nats’ bullpen.
Thomas Jefferson, who had dressed as Princess Leia the previous two years, passed them both in a Rey costume, before running into George Washington (Kylo Ren).
Jedi master Screech leaped onto the field to hand a lightsaber to Rey, who used the force to disarm Ren in the ensuing battle.
Meanwhile, another year has gone by without the Nats heeding Han Solo’s advice to let the wookie win.
