What a day of baseball. The final day of the 2012 season provided much excitement as the Yankees and A’s won their divisions, Miguel Cabrera won the Triple Crown and most importantly, Teddy Roosevelt finally won the Presidents Race! After racking up over 500 losses since 2006, Teddy (aided by a Phillies Phanatic-like mystery mascot) outlasted the competition to claim first place. Also of note, the Nationals recorded their first winning record, playoff berth and division title this year. (Mark Goldman/Icon SMI)
