I can’t even imagine what an experience this must have been!
By the way, Major League sports teams should take note of how to be a class act, because this championship Little League team gets it!
First, President Trump invited the team up on his stage at his Louisiana MAGA Rally:
And then he flew them home on Air Force One!
Absolutely the experience of a lifetime for these kids, wow!
Here's more, from Fox News:
The Eastbank All-Stars were visiting Washington, D.C., following their 8-0 victory over Curacao in August to clinch the baseball title, Politico reported. The team took a tour of the Capitol in a visit hosted by Republican Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana, who serves as the House minority whip.
Trump also welcomed North Carolina's Rowan County All-Stars, the 2019 Little League Softball World Series Champions.
The Louisiana players met with Trump at the White House and again at Andrews Air ForceBase in Maryland. Trump was heading to Lake Charles, La., to galvanize Republicans in a bid to keep Democratic Gov. John Bel Edwards from winning a second term.
During the visit, Trump invited the team to hitch a ride aboard the aircraft.
"Today, the President welcomed the team to the Oval Office along with North Carolina’s Rowan Little League Softball Team," Deputy Press Secretary Steven Groves said in a statement. "During their visit in the Oval Office, the President invited the Louisiana team to fly to Louisiana with him this evening."
And from Breitbart:
President Donald Trump welcomed the winners of the Little League World Series on stage at a “Keep America Great” rally in Lake Charles, Louisiana, on Friday evening.
“I’d like to welcome the winners of the 2019 Little League World Series Championships,” Trump said. “Look at these handsome kids. It drives me crazy how good looking they are.”
“They won! They’re the whole deal; they’re number one in the world,” Trump said, adding that he got so used to watching Japan win and it would always “be a bit controversial.”
“But this year, you have the world champions — Little League — from Louisiana,” Trump said to cheers in the audience.
The president then read each of the names of the players one by one, congratulating them on their big win.
“So congratulations to Will Andraide, Gavin Berry — come on up here kids — Jeffrey Curtis, Ryan Darrah, Derek Delatte, Marshall Louque, Connor Perrot, Ryder Planchard, Egan Prather, Reece Roussell, Alton Shorts, Peyton Spadoni, and Stan Wiltz.”
“Thank you all for the support,” one of the players said.
“So where’s this big pitcher?” Somebody’s gonna make a lot of money representing this guy.” “You ready for the major leagues someday?” Trump asked the pitcher, to which the pitcher modestly said, “yes.”
Trump first welcomed the team, the Louisiana Eastbank All Stars, on Air Force One earlier in the day after a planned visit to the White House.
Proudly Support Trump!
The exact same hat our President wears!
Only while they last....
