Tonight: Washington Nationals’ Racing Presidents Visit Reston Town Center

The Washington Nationals will bring out their Racing Presidents today at Reston Town Center.

During the fourth inning of every Nationals home game, Presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft and Herbert Hoover race in what has become a fixture of games since 2006.

The presidents are introduced individually when they enter the park and they run along the track and turn for a final sprint along the first base foul line. This year, the race featured the original “Rushmore Four,” restoring a traditional lineup that competed in earlier races.

At Reston Town Center, the presidents will entertain guests at Fountain Square around the skating rink. The event will run from 5 – 7 p.m. and will include entertainment and giveaways.
