Cora (Boston Red Sox Manager) to skip Red Sox's trip to White House

Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora announced Sunday that he will not accompany his team to celebrate its World Series title at the White House on Thursday.

In a statement in Spanish sent to El Nuevo Dia, Cora cited the fact that Puerto Rico still has not recovered from Hurricane Maria in 2017 for his decision.

Cora confirmed to reporters in Chicago after the Red Sox's 9-2 victory over the White Sox that he will not be accompanying his team to the White House.

"Like the report said, the government has done some things back home that are great, but we still have a long ways to go. That's our reality. It's pretty tough to go celebrate when we're where we are at. I'd rather not go and just be consistent with everything," he said.

3. Why would they be going now?

It's six or seven months after the series.

5. usually the White house visit for an MLB team coincides with a road trip in the area


so everyone is in the same place.

For AL teams it is when the team travels to Baltimore. For NL teams when they travel to the Washington Nationals.

Boston plays Baltimore this week.
