SF Giants Headed To White House After World Series Championship

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON — Next stop for the World Series champion San Francisco Giants? The White House.

President Barack Obama will open the White House to the Giants on Monday in honor of their first World Series title since the franchise moved West in 1958. San Francisco finished off the Texas Rangers in five games last year to win it all.

"It's going to be very special," manager Bruce Bochy said before the Giants hosted the Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday night. "I'm certainly looking forward to it. The guys can spend some time there and get a chance to meet the president, which is always an honor. It's going to be a thrill for everybody."

The White House said Obama also will recognize the team's efforts to give back to the San Francisco area community.
