World Series Champions Red Sox To Visit White House, Team’s Name Misspelled As “Red Socks” In Official Announcement

The Boston Red Sox, the reigning World Series champions, will visit the White House on Friday to celebrate their victory with President Donald Trump, but their name was misspelled in the administration’s official announcement.

“President Trump Welcomes the 2018 World Series Champions The Boston Red Socks to the White House,” the announcement read last Friday morning.

CBS Boston reported that the statement was corrected around 9 a.m. that morning, although the error had remained posted long enough for people on Twitter to mock the White House.

Thus far, several members of the Red Sox have said they will skip the White House visit, among them manager Alex Cora. 

Cora, who is from Puerto Rico, said earlier this month that he was dismayed by the Trump administration’s response to hurricane relief on the territory.

Red Sox players who will also miss the White House visit on Friday include David Price, Mookie Betts, Christian Vasquez and Sandy Leon.
