The Boston Red ‘Socks’?: Trump White House Misspells Boston Red Sox Ahead Of Visit





Ahead of the Boston Red Sox visit with President Donald Trump in Washington D.C., the White House website misspelled the championship team’s name in an announcement detailing their upcoming visit to the nation’s capital Friday.

“President Trump Welcomes the 2018 World Series Champions The Boston Red Socks to the White House,” the announcement read on the White House’s website on Thursday morning.

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



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

Team 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.

Mookie Betts, David Price, Rafael Devers, Sandy Leon and Christian Vazquez are among the players who have confirmed they will skip the celebration.
