The Senate on Tuesday passed a resolution by unanimous consent congratulating the Boston Red Sox for winning the 2013 World Series against the St. Louis Cardinals.

The resolution, S.Res. 287, applauds the Red Sox for "bringing the World Series title back to Boston, and the players, manager, coaches, support staff, and owners whose dedication, commitment, and spirit made this season a historic success." It also directs the secretary of the Senate to send an enrolled copy of the resolution to Red Sox manager John Farrell and various executives of the team.

But the Senate resolution is all the Red Sox are likely to get. House GOP leaders have shunned resolutions praising sports teams. The last World Series winner to get a House resolution were the New York Yankees.

The Senate language notes that the Red Sox was the first team in history to win the World Series after losing at least 93 games the previous year. Among other players, it recognizes designated hitter and occasional first baseman David Ortiz for batting .688 in the six-game series and "hitting two critical home runs, and cementing his reputation as one of the greatest postseason performers in baseball history."
