Chicago Cubs to make second White House visit on Wednesday

The Chicago Cubs will be making a second visit to the White House on Wednesday, manager Joe Maddon told reporters.

The Cubs already visited the White House to celebrate their World Series title in January before President Obama left office. Wednesday’s visit is an informal one to President Trump.

The Cubs said that about two dozen people from the team’s traveling party, including players, will visit the White House, according to ESPN’s Jesse Rogers.

Maddon will also be speaking to a group of young Republicans at a luncheon on Wednesday. He is good friends with congressman Lou Barletta and will be joining him in the luncheon.

The Cubs will play the second game of a four-game series against the Washington Nationals on Tuesday night at Nationals Park.
