Red Sox Manager on Visiting the White House: ‘We’ll Talk About It Later’

Alex Cora, the manager of the World Series champion Boston Red Sox, said Sunday that the team had not decided whether to visit President Trump at the White House following the team’s defeat of the Los Angeles Dodgers.

CBS Boston reported that following the Red Sox win, their fourth World Series in 15 years, Cora was asked if the team would be visiting the White House, if they were invited.

“We’ll talk about it later on,” Cora said.

Typically, American professional sports teams that win their championships visit the White House. That’s not always been the case in the Trump era, as several teams have refused to go to the White House out of protest of the president and his policies.

The Philadelphia Eagles, who had won the Super Bowl earlier this year, were disinvited from attending the White House ceremony after “it became evident only a small number of players would be attending.” Similarly, the Golden State Warriors did not visit the White House following their 2017 and 2018 NBA wins.

The Pittsburgh Penguins did attend a White House ceremony following their 2017 Stanley Cup victory, as did the New England Patriots following their Super Bowl win in 2017.
