Nationals Announce ‘Bill’ Taft as Fifth Racing President

Remember this?

Well, Teddy has new competition.

The Washington Nationals will announce William Howard Taft as the fifth racing president at Nats Fest Saturday afternoon.

The team broke the news on its blog Friday evening, the country’s 27th president would be joining the All-Star cast of Abe, George, Tom and Teddy for the once-a-game race around Nats Park during the 2013 baseball season.

This is a major league addition to the time-honored tradition.

You may remember when Washington made ‘national’ headlines after Teddy raced to his first victory in more than 500 attempts  last season.

And by the looks of it, he may finally have some help…
