Trump will host World Champion Nationals at the White House

The fun didn't end there. Rizzo, a cigar in his mouth, jumped off with the World Series trophy to show the fans lining the barricades and slap high-fives. You live your life, Dozier.

The steps of the National Archives and many other buildings along Constitution Avenue were packed like bleachers for the duration of the World Series parade.

Doolittle found support from Larry Stokes of Boyds, Maryland, citing Trump's stand on immigrants.

"I have a brother-in-law who has autism, and (Trump) is a guy that mocked a disabled reporter", Doolittle said. "I wanted to thank each and every individual on this team and coaching staff who helped us get here, so I've teamed up with Johnnie Walker to gift them an engraved bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue Label to mark this moment and toast to the future".

Championship teams visiting the White House has always been a tradition in North American pro sports but has grown in controversy during the Trump era.

In any event, I respect Doolittle's decision not to attend.

It's the first World Series championship for the nation's capital since the Senators won in 1924. And he has a succinct response.

"I don't think it's going to be our last time".

"The rhetoric, time and time again, has enabled those kind of behaviors, " Doolittle continued, referring to racism and white supremacy.

"It feels like now people with those beliefs, they maybe feel a little bit more empowered". "I loved everything about what they did starting around August when they came to play the Giants, and they swept the Giants - a three-game series in San Francisco, and you could feel the chemistry start to build". "I don't want to hang out with somebody who talks like that".

Doolittle said he wants his teammates to enjoy their experience at the White House, but reiterated that he couldn't be part of the festivities.

Martinez said he liked to hear the mayor pushing for back-to-back championships and said: "I get it".
