Red Sox's Alex Cora won't visit White House, citing Puerto Rico response

May 6, 2019, 12:32 AM EDT / Source: Associated Press

CHICAGO Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora will not attend the ceremony at the White House on Thursday honoring the 2018 World Series champions.

Cora cited the Trump administration's response to Hurricane Maria in his native Puerto Rico as the reason for his decision.

"The government has done some things back home that are great, but we still have a long ways to go," he said on Sunday following a 9-2 win over the Chicago White Sox. "That's our reality. It's pretty tough to go celebrate when we're where we're at. I'd rather not go and be consistent with everything."

Cora recently said he might attend the ceremony and say something, but had a change of heart after speaking with family and friends.

Let's Go Red Sox!

Let rumpie consume his portion of the junk food served. Don't forget to bake The Fuhrer a chocolate cake.
