Last year, the Houston Astros, who won the second World Series title in club history, prevented US President Joe Biden at the White House.
MLB.com, the official MLB website, reported on the same day that coach Dusty Baker and the Houston team visited the White House on the 8th (Korean time).
This is in accordance with MLB tradition. The team that won the World Series visits the White House the following year. There are also some players who refuse depending on their political inclinations.
The Houston team and owner Jim Crane presented President Biden with the number 46 uniform, which has the meaning of the ’46th President of the United States’. This too is a tradition.
President Biden mentioned Houston’s contribution to the community along with winning the World Series last year.토토사이트
In addition, President Biden praised Baker, who won his first World Series championship at the age of 73 last year. This seems to be conscious of the criticism about his age pouring down on him.
President Biden said, “People ignored you (Director Baker) as having passed their prime,” and “I know what that is.”
The World Series winning team visits the White House the following year on an away trip to the Washington Nationals or the Baltimore Orioles. Houston will have an away game against Baltimore from the 9th.
