The Dodgers are getting their first real chance to celebrate their 2020 World Series win. After winning the title last year in Texas, the celebrations have been limited to players and coaches within the organization due to the pandemic.
On Friday morning in Washington DC, the Dodgers will celebrate with White House staff and President Joe Biden. The event will be held in the East Room of the White House at approximately 8:30 a.m Los Angeles time.
For the Dodgers, this is the first time in a very long time that the Dodgers will make the trip. They were last there in October 1988 when Ronald Reagan was still the President. They break that drought tomorrow morning with Joe Biden.
The Dodgers won the World Series over 8 months ago but are just now getting a real chance to celebrate. At this point, it seems unlikely that they would hold any sort of parade for fans in Los Angeles to celebrate the win.
But at least Dodgers fans will get to see their players in the White House getting the photo-op. Dave Roberts had previously said that the group going to meet with the President would be a smaller group due to COVID-19 protocols.
The Dodgers have not yet announced which players will be in attendance. But it will certainly only be members of the 2020 squad.
