Red Sox manager meets President Barack Obama at hotel gym

Obama And Castro Meet For The Second Time This Year

NEW YORK (AP) — Just like any other morning on a Boston Red Sox road trip, interim manager Torey Lovullo woke up and headed for the gym at the team hotel.

Only this time, he met a new exercise partner during an unforgettable workout that was anything but routine.

When Lovullo arrived to lift weights, there was President Barack Obama pumping iron in a long-sleeve T-shirt and sweats. Lovullo introduced himself and talked baseball with Obama, who was in New York this week for his annual trip to the United Nations.

Lovullo says they had a great conversation and he asked Obama when he would be leaving town, because all the security in place was making it awfully inconvenient to come and go and even grab a cup of coffee.

After their chat, Lovullo took a photo with the president.
