Will Taft Race in Clydesdale Division?

The Washington Nationals major league baseball team is arguably more famous for its foam presidents race at home games. It made national news last October when Teddy Roosevelt ended his 525-race losing streak and won for the first time.

The Nationals decided to add a fifth foam president for the upcoming season, and after a lot of speculation about the choice, team officials introduced William Howard Taft. Here’s the video:

While fans were excited by the choice, they were disappointed by the size of Foam Taft. The 27th President was notorious for being the heaviest man to occupy the White House, and once got stuck in a bathtub. Foam Taft looks absolutely svelte, suggesting he is already in training for the race season.
