Yankees visiting the White House next MondayBy
Buried at the bottom of this column about the Yankees’ awesomeness, Joel Sherman mentions that the team will visit the White House next Monday where President Obama will honor the World Champions. The team is off that day, and they’ll be in the D.C. area after flying east from the West Coast en route to a date with the Orioles. Traditionally, the team being honored will give the Commander-in-Chief a jersey featuring the number that corresponds to his presidency, but 44 is already taken in Yankeeland. It would be pretty funny if Reggie made a big stink about the team’s giving away a jersey with his retired number and to a noted White Sox fan no less.
