David Ortiz snaps Obama selfie during Red Sox White House visit

Published Add your comment

The Boston Red Sox are in Washington today as they visit the White House to celebrate last season's World Series victory.

And as seems to be the tradition for sports teams visiting President Obama these days, the MLB team presented the President with his own 'Obama 44' Red Sox jersey.

With the players soaking in the atmosphere of their big day out, Red Sox legend David Ortiz took the opportunity to get a memento of the day with the President himself.

As the picture above shows, Big Papi snapped a selfie with Obama as the President held up his new jersey during the ceremony outside of the White House.

Obama clearly put to one side his support for the Chicago White Sox for a few moments as he grinned along with Ortiz prior to the official photo call.

The Boston Red Sox began the new MLB season yesterday with a 2-1 defeat to the Baltimore Orioles.
