The Washington Nationals have added a sixth “racing president” — Herbert Hoover, the 31st President of the United States.

The Nats debuted “Herbie” during Sunday’s game against the Marlins, and he picked up a victory in his very first race.

Caution: Herbie’s eyes look incredibly frightening.

As it turns out, Hoover had a deep connection to baseball. He played for the Stanford baseball team as a freshman and went on to manage the team.

He joins George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and William Taft in the mascot races.
