Government shutdown could affect Red Sox’s White House visit plans, owner says

President Donald Trump hosted Clemson on Monday at the White House to celebrate the Tigers' 44-16 win over Alabama in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game.

According to the Boston Globe, Trump will roll out the red carpet to celebrate another championship next month.

The World Series champion Red Sox are scheduled to visit the White House on Feb. 15, team president Sam Kennedy said Tuesday.

The plan is for the team to travel as a group from its spring training base in Fort Myers, Fla., to Washington and return later that day. It is likely the Sox would also visit the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.

“We thought an earlier visit rather than waiting until later in the year made the most sense,” Kennedy said.

The government shutdown has “stalled” communications with the White House, Kennedy said. But the Sox have informed players and staff that Feb. 15 is the target date.
