Red Sox accept Trump's White House invitation

Red Sox

The Boston Red Sox, who won the World Series almost five weeks ago, have accepted President Donald Trump's invitation to the White House, franchise President Sam Kennedy said.

There's no set date for the Red Sox team visit as of yet.

World Series champions are typically invited to visit the White House and meet the President as part of their celebration tour every year, as is the case with the other major pro North American sports leagues.

The White House canceled a visit by the Philadelphia Eagles, the NFL Super Bowl champions, on June 6 when only a few players said they would attend.

The Boston Red Sox have accepted an invitation to go to the White House, and manager Alex Cora, who has been critical of President Donald Trump's comments on Puerto Rico, says he will attend.

The Red Sox will be the second Boston sports team to visit the White House during the Trump administration, as the Patriots (minus starting quarterback and MVP Tom Brady, anyway) visited Trump in April. 2017.

"To be tweeting about 3,000 people ... it's actually disrespectful for my country", said Cora, who hails from Caguas.

In September, Cora - the first Puerto Rican manager to win the World Series - expressed frustration that the president questioned the death toll left by Hurricane Maria on the island in 2017. What's going to happen between a pitcher a batter at this very moment, what will this outcome be - you can see in the future where that all can happen very fast in real time.

'It's a little bit, kind of like, frustrating that the topic keeps coming and coming and coming, ' Cora continued. And I respect him.

Asked after winning the Series if he would go to the White House, Cora said he would use his visit for good.

Several players on the Golden State Warriors said they would not go to the White House after winning the National Basketball Association title in 2017, so Trump rescinded the invitation for the entire team. 'It won't be Golden State or Cleveland going'.

NASCAR driver Martin Truex Jr. also visited the White House after winning a points title in 2017.
