Washington Nationals holding tryouts for `racing presidents'

Candidates have been invited to the team's Youth Baseball Academy on Sunday to perform a freestyle dance, run a 40-yard dash and participate in two presidential races from center field to the home dugout. Applicants will also be asked a series of questions.

The racing candidates are looking to fill the roles of the 12-foot-tall mascots depicting George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt and William Howard Taft.
