• For the first time, the Teddy Roosevelt mascot won the Presidents Race in the middle of the fourth inning at Nationals Park. Teddy - Mr. Rough Rider, himself - had lost more than 500 times since 2006, when the Nationals began having races among 10-foot-tall foam renderings of Roosevelt, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Abe Lincoln at home games. Teddy was helped when a green mascot intended to look like the Phillie Phanatic knocked down the other three presidents.
