    If you've ever wanted to "run for president," here's your chance!

    The Washington Nationals are looking for candidates who want to be Racing Presidents for the upcoming season.

    But there are some rules. You have to be at least 18 years old, and you must be between 5 feet 7 inches and 6 feet 6 inches tall to apply. 

    You also need a high school diploma, be able to attend at least 40 percent of the team's home games and be able to run from center field to first base in a 50-pound costume.

    The Racing Presidents have been around since 2006. The 12-foot tall presidential mascots represent five former presidents: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevel and William Taft.

    In addition to their park duties, the Racing Presidents also greet fans and make appearances outside the park.
