Barack Obama welcomes World Series champion Red Sox

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama has welcomed the World Series champion
Red Sox to the White House, praising their triumph on the field last fall while
hailing them as a symbol of their city’s determined response to the bombing at
last year’s Boston Marathon.

Obama said Tuesday he’s grateful for the role the team played in helping heal
the city after the terror attack. He said sometimes sports seems trivial, but it
can bring people together like almost nothing else. Red Sox slugger David Ortiz
at one point took a selfie of himself and the president as a keepsake.

Flanked by the players and team officials, Obama noted the Red Sox have the
winningest championship record in baseball over the past decade. Last year’s
title was the team’s third in a decade.
