The Chicago Cubs visited the White House for the second time since they won their first World Series in over 108 years last season.
There was no press allowed to cover the event but here is a picture of some of the Cubs players meeting President Trump for the first time. The Cubs gave the President a Cubs jersey No. 45 with his name on it.
Cubs manager Joe Maddon said the following remarks about the White House to reporters on Tuesday.
"Whether you like the person that's running the country or not, out of respect for the office itself, you go," Maddon said.
The group of Cubs to visit the White House will be around 20-25 people which will not be mandatory for the players.
The Chicago Sun-times polled 22 players and 10 planned to skip the White House visit.
Wonder if asst. GM Scott Harris (blue tie, right) knows how long before they can DFA No. 45. pic.twitter.com/zp8bmJyJRR— Gordon Wittenmyer (@GDubCub) June 28, 2017
