Minutes later, the Nationals posted a follow on story, with additional details about "Bill", like, he has his own Twitter account: @NatsBigChief27. There's Taft at a Washington Senators game in 1910 in a Library of Congress photo.
The big fat guy will make his first public appearance on Saturday at NatsFest.
Oh well, we were really pulling for Nixon.
