Royals White House Celebration

Royals In The White House

It’s an American sports tradition: Win the championship… Meet the President… 

The Kansas City Royals have now done it twice, and Frank White, Jr. has been there for both of the Royals’ official presidential visits. 

Today, the Jackson County Executive joined what Barack Obama called “quite a few Royal fans in the house” as the President welcomed the 2015 Worlds Series champions into The White House. Thirty years ago, White was, of course, the Royals star second baseman and stood directly behind President Ronald Reagan when “The Gipper” honored the 1985 World Series champs. 

White coached many of the 2015 Royals in the club’s farm system and was proud to see the promise they showed in the minors fulfilled with a championship run in the Majors. "It is a great feeling to witness players that I managed and coached win the World Series and be celebrated by the president of the United States,” he said. “It is an honor and a privilege to represent the people of Jackson County each and every day, but I must admit, this is truly special. Go Royals! Go Jackson County!”
