The White House announced on Thursday that President Donald Trump would meet with “The Boston Red Socks” to celebrate the team’s 2018 World Series victory.
CBS Boston noticed the typo on the White House’s website just hours before the famous baseball team was scheduled to meet with Trump.
The spelling has now been corrected.
The spelling error isn’t the only bit of controversy around the team’s visit to the White House. Red Sox manager Alex Cora won’t be attending the ceremony with the rest of his team due to Trump’s poor response to the hurricane crisis in Cora’s native Puerto Rico.
“It’s pretty tough to go celebrate when we’re where we’re at,” Cora told the Associated Press. “I’d rather not go and be consistent with everything.”
