  • Red Sox accept Trump's White House invitation

The Boston Red Sox have accepted an invitation to the White House to celebrate their World Series championship.

"We've accepted and we're going to see if there's a date that works", team President Sam Kennedy said Monday night before the premiere of the ballclub's 2018 highlight video. But after some Golden State Warriors said they would not attend Trump's White House following their 2017 championship, they were uninvited by the President.

White House visits have become a polarizing topic in recent years, particularly after Trump took office.

Red Sox manager Alex Cora commented on the Boston decision.

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. "Actually, I'm gonna represent 4 million people from back home the right way when we go there".

Pakistan had hopes of an emphatic win once Shaheen Shah Afridi had Ross Taylor caught hooking for 22 with the total at 60-4. But BJ Watling resisted with 77 not out, delaying his record until the second innings.

Cora called out Trump in September after the president questioned the death toll of Hurricane Maria, which slammed Puerto Rico in 2017. 'This is about a country that really suffered. You see the hurricanes forming now. One thing's for sure, and I told [the media] before, one thing I'm proud, we're standing up on our own two feet. And I respect him. And like I said: Hey, man, thank you for helping us.

Trump invited the Golden State Warriors to the White House after winning the National Basketball Association title in 2017 but uninvited them when some players said they would not go to the White House.

Asked after winning the Series if he would go to the White House, Cora said he would use his visit for good. I know probably he doesn't feel that way. On June 6, when the Philadelphia Eagles attempted to send a delegation of only a few players, the White House canceled the visit.

On Monday, Cora said he will attend the ceremony in the White House.

The Houston Astros visited the White House in March, and the Washington Capitals have received an invitation.
