Eight stories above the ground, the west spire of the Washington National Cathedral is surprising large when you are inside it. It looks so small from the ground.

In 2009, the Nationals introduce Racing President Bobbleheads–seven-foot stationary bobbleheads in the likeness of George, Tom, Abe, Teddy and the GEICO Gecko–in the Nats Family Fun Area.

The Presidents Race, presented by GEICO, takes place during the middle of the 4th inning at every Washington Nationals home game at Nationals Park during the fourth inning. The race, which dates back to the 2006 season at RFK Stadium, features the four former Presidents depicted on Mount Rushmore–George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt.

Nationals Park, located along the Anacostia River in the Navy Yard neighborhood, replaced RFK Stadium as the home for the Washington Nationals of Major League Baseball in 2008. The ballpark, designed by Populous (formerly HOK Sport) and Devrouax & Purnell Architects and Planners, seats 41,888 fans and cost 1 million to build. The park’s name echoes the original name of the early-1900s ballpark used by the Washington Senators/Nationals, which was called National Park until it was rebuilt and renamed Griffith Stadium.
