Nationals' Mascots Visit Black Hills Of South Dakota

Some of the most well-known political figures are visiting South Dakota's Black Hills.

The Washington Nationals presidential mascots are spending President's Day at Mount Rushmore.

This is the first time the mascots have visited western South Dakota. The team includes the four presidents whose faces appear on Mount Rushmore:  George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln. William H. Taft just joined the Nationals team. He was the first president to throw the ceremonial first pitch at a season opener.

Other places that the mascots visited during their three-day trip to South Dakota included Custer State Park, Wall Drug Store and Deadwood.

The Black Hills, Badlands & Lakes Association invited the mascots and are acting as host. Video footage from their tour will be played during future games.
