Defending 2019 World Series champions, the Boston Red Sox, visited President Donald Trump at the White House Thursday.
Fresh off a series with the Baltimore Orioles, the Red Sox made the roughly one-hour flight to Washington, D.C., to celebrate their historic 2018 season, in which the team won 108 games and dominated the postseason. (RELATED: Boston Red Sox Win The World Series In Incredible Fashion)

Not in attendance were manager Alex Cora and several players who decided to skip the visit. The players who did go, however, appeared to have a great time. There has been no word on if Red Sox players continued the newly-enshrined tradition of dining on fast food during their visit.
Like many defending champions, the Red Sox have struggled a bit out of the gates and currently hold a record of 19-19 on the season. (RELATED: Man Runs Onto The Field During Chicago White Sox Game)
However, the franchise still retains much of the core of their championship team and most likely have another run left in them.
Congrats to the entire organization on its championship success!
