Barack Obama challenges Nationals' racing Presidents to a race (PHOTO)

BY foxsports • June 12, 2015

President Barack Obama paid a visit to some former Presidents on Thursday, and in the spirit of Nationals Park, challenged them to a race.

The President made a surprise guest appearance at the 54th Annual Congressional Baseball Game -- €”yes, that's an actual event -- and met up with the Nationals' racing Presidents while he was there.

Naturally, of course.

Obama, who is a big sports fan, nabbed a photo with all five of the Nats' racing Presidents (from left to right: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, William Howard Taft, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln).

Now, that's one presidential race we'd all love to see unfold.

On a side note, it appears as though Presidents have shrunk over the years. Either way, there's no chance Jefferson is 6-foot-3 as listed in his bio. He does, however, look great for 272 years old.

And because you're dying to know, the Democrats won the game, 5-2, taking the all-time series edge over the Republicans, 39-38-1.
