The 2018 Boston Red Sox are headed to the White House to celebrate their World Series title.
Well, some of them.
The Red Sox are scheduled to meet Donald Trump in Washington, D.C. on Thursday afternoon, continuing the tradition of championship teams visiting the current president.
But their manager, Alex Cora, won't attend, citing Trump's handling of post-Hurricane Maria recovery efforts in Cora's native Puerto Rico. Several other minority players also won't make the trip -- Mookie Betts, David Price, Jackie Bradley Jr., Xander Bogaerts, Rafael Devers, Sandy Leon, Christian Vazquez and Hector Velazquez -- prompting some to question if there's a racial divide in Boston's clubhouse.
Cora shot down that notion Wednesday, but plenty of eyes still will be on the attendees Thursday at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
The festivities are set to begin at 3:45 p.m. ET. You can watch via the link below or the live stream in the MyTeams app.
