Ned Yost just received a phone call from President Barack Obama moments ago. As per an email to this blogger from the White House Press Pool, this is what The President said:
On the record from WH Press Secretary Josh Earnest:
“Aboard Air Force One en route Newark, New Jersey, the President called Ned Yost, manager of the World Series Champion Kansas City Royals. The President said the team was a lot of fun to watch and that they’d made long-suffering Royals fans justifiably proud. He said he was looking forward to welcoming the team to the White House to celebrate their victory.”
The Kansas City Royals defeated the New York Mets 4 games to 2 to win the 2015 World Series.
