The untimely death of Philadelphia legend Harry Kalas forced the Phillies to cancel their Tuesday, April 14 visit to the White House. But, it's finally here, Friday's the day the World Series Champs will meet President Barrack Obama.
They're heading to Washington to take on the Nationals in a three-day, four-game series that begins tonight at 7:05 p.m., but first, they'll visit the White House to visit with the Prez and present him with a secret gift they picked out especially for him!
"It should be very exciting," first baseman Ryan Howard told PhillyBurbs.com.
From Broad Street to Pennsylvania Avenue, the Phils are livin' large.
