Today the San Francisco Giants visited the White House for the third time in five years. President Barack Obama welcomed manager Bruce Bochy and the team to honor their World Series baseball championship last season.
The president singled out star players like pitcher Madison Bumgarner, catcher Buster Posey and outfielder Hunter Pence.
"He was not only named to the all-star team," said Obama, "he inspired a craze of signs from opposing fans like - 'Hunter Pence eats pizza with a fork,' 'Hunter Pence likes Godfather III.' Not everybody would've laughed at those signs, but not everybody is Hunter Pence."
The team is now headed to Philadelphia to open a three-game series with the Phillies.
The Giants' minor league team is the Sacramento River Cats.
Obama also praised the Giants for the team's commitment to helping underserved youth.
