FOX 26 quotes Astros president Reid Ryan as saying, “The White House has reached out to the Astros and invited the team to come to Washington, D.C.” That’s right, the boys in navy, orange, and white are going to be honored by the President of the United States at the White House due to their amazing World Series win in 2017.

Usually, the winning World Series team would visit the White House when they play the Nationals since they would already be in town (or they would visit when they play the Orioles in nearby Baltimore). But the schedule didn’t quite work out for the Astros in terms of convenience. They don’t play the Nationals this year, and they aren’t set to play the Orioles until the end of the season. “We’re currently looking at options for dates and are focusing on something during spring training right now,” Ryan says.

In terms of who will choose to visit the White House, Yahoo Sports speculates, “There are always some no-shows for presidential visits. It would not be shocking if Bregman, Correa and Beltran, who would likely be invited along given that he was a leader on the World Series-winning team, are among the no-shows.”
