Exclusive Shots From The 2010 Geico President’s Race Auditions At Nationals Park!


The Washington Nationals hosted invite-only auditions for the 2010 Geico President’s Race yesterday afternoon at Nationals Park. Over forty hopefuls competed for the chance to become one of four great American Presidents for all home games this season. Check out a few exclusive shots of all those George, Tom and Abe’s (this is the fourth year that the twelve foot Teddy costume was not used during the auditions) running through an untouched, snow covered warning track after the page jump.







Want to know more about what it takes to become the lucky one who wears the suit? Check back in on Monday afternoon!

  1. You know, this is probably the reason Teddy never wins – no one gets to try out in him! WHAT IS THAT ABOUT? I think it’s part of the plan to keep Teddy down.

  2. My guess is that Teddy’s a professional mascot person since he ends up doing most of the pratfalls and stunts while the others just run around the warning track…

    And I think it’s more proof that Teddy will NEVER win… :(

  6. Nice photos. I think the people winning the auditions will have the opportunity to be Teddy. I suspect they don’t want footage of him “winning” an audition
