Apparently, the White House doesn't waste its time proofreading its official announcements.
The Boston Red Sox will celebrate their World Series championship at the White House on Thursday, amid controversy with several players skipping out on the event for various reasons.
The White House and President Donald Trump are set to welcome the team at 3:45 p.m. ET, without manager Alex Cora, and players such as Mookie Betts and David Price.
Whoever is in charge of making the official announcement either doesn't know a thing about sports, apparently can't be bothered with a Google search or ask anyone to proofread before hitting send.
Here is what the White House said is happening on Thursday with an Upcoming Events post.
"President Trump Welcomes the 2018 World Series Champions The Boston Red Socks to the White House," the official White House website says.
Let's hope the "Boston Red Socks" at least enjoy the fast food they will probably receive.
After the team had finished its visit, a trip Red Sox legend David Ortiz said he would not have made, the White House sent an email to let people see what Trump said while the World Series champs were there.

World Cup Series?
Unfortunately, there is no World Cup Series. But if we could do some sort of baseball-soccer hybrid to rival BASEketball, we should get some people together to make that happen ASAP.
