Red Sox pitcher confirms White House visit: 'Hell yeah, I f*** with Trump'

It appears that at least one Boston Red Sox player has committed to visiting the White House after the team's World Series championship. 

Relief pitcher Heath Hembree, who posted a 0.00 ERA in 4 postseason appearances for Boston this year, emphatically confirmed that he wants to attend the traditional ceremony at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. 

Hembree was approached by TMZ Sports while exiting a nightclub in Los Angeles after the Red Sox won the decisive Game 5 on Sunday night. When asked if he would attend a potential trip to the White House, the pitcher said, "Hell yeah, I f*** with Trump."

When asked what he liked about President Trump, Hembree simply replied, "Everything."

Hembree was born and raised in South Carolina, where nearly 55 percent of residents voted for Trump in the 2016 election. He has pitched for Boston since 2014. 

While Hembree seemed eager to head to the White House, Red Sox manager Alex Cora implied that a trip hadn't yet been confirmed.

"We'll talk about it later on," Cora said in his news conference immediately after the championship win. The Red Sox skipper, a native of Puerto Rico, has been critical of Trump's comments previously. 

The Red Sox defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers in five games to clinch the franchise's ninth World Series victory.
