Report: Cubs to visit White House again

The Chicago Cubs will visit the White House on Wednesday according to multiple reports which will be their second visit since meeting former President Obama back in January.

The former President appeared to enjoy the visit with the Chicago Cubs before he left office.

"I made a lot of promises in 2008," President Obama said. "But even I was not crazy enough to suggest that during these eight years we would see the Cubs win the World Series. But I did say that there's never been anything false about hope. The audacity of hope. Yes, we can."

This will be an informal visit on Wednesday to the White House since they are already in Washington D.C. playing the Nationals and Cubs manager Joe Maddon will get the opportunity to speak with the Young Republicans group.

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 visit was setup by the Ricketts family and not Cubs manager Joe Maddon.
