President Obama will welcome the Boston Red Sox to the White House on Tuesday to celebrate the team's 2013 World Series championship.
The team is likely to receive a hero's welcome in the West Wing, where a sizable number of staffers hail from New England.
And White House press secretary Jay Carney wore a Red Sox hat for his regular press briefing the day after Boston clinched the title.
"What a great team! What a great win! What a lot of fun! What an amazing baseball player David Ortiz is!" Carney said.
