Today was a big day for the Los Angeles Dodgers. They are here in D.C. playing the Washington Nationals this weekend. This was a matchup of the past two World Series Champs. But more importantly, the Dodgers visited President Joe Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, and The White House this afternoon. The Dodgers are the first professional sports team to visit the White House since Covid.
President Joe Biden and Kamala Harris were both in attendance. Biden gave a great speech and reflected on the Dodgers’ past and the nostalgia of the franchise. A few clips of his speech are included below.
Joe Biden also had Kamala Harris come to the stage. Clayton Kershaw made some remarks on what it meant to the team to visit the White House. Along with Dodgers Manager Dave Roberts, Kershaw presented President Biden and Vice President both with Dodgers Jersey. A #46 Jersey for President Biden and a #49 Jersey for Vice President Harris.
