The White House misspelled the Boston Red Sox as the “Boston Red Socks” in an announcement detailing the championship team’s visit to the nation’s capital Thursday.

According to CBS Boston, the announcement was corrected around 9 a.m., but the gaffe had already made its way around social media.

The Red Sox team is scheduled to meet with President Trump on Thursday to celebrate its 2018 World Series win.  

So far, a few members of the team have already confirmed they won’t be in attendance for the planned visit. 

Earlier this month, manager Alex Cora said he would not be attending the visit in opposition to the Trump administration’s handling of hurricane relief in Puerto Rico. Cora was born in the Puerto Rican city of Caguas.
