Washington Nationals vs. San Francisco Giants, RFK Stadium, Saturday, Sept. 1, 7 p.m.
Yes, seeing any of the three games in the Nats-Giants series will work, given Barry Bonds, but in Saturday night’s game the legendary Bonds will take a back seat to the real celebrity of the evening: Teddy! It is the Teddy Roosevelt bobble head night, with the first 20,000 fans having an opportunity to complete their collection of four Presidents bobble-heads given out this summer at RFK. The big question is whether or not Teddy, the big version that races at every Nats home game with George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Abe Lincoln, will win his very first race ever! In two years, he hasn’t won once, but going into this Saturday, George won on his bobble head night, Tom on his and Abe on his. So, will this be Teddy’s big night?
