The Red Sox met President Barack Obama at the White House today and slugger David Ortiz managed to get a selfie with the president.
Within moments, the photo has been retweeted thousands of times.
The Red Sox responded to the Tweeted selfie by asking if it’s the greatest selfie ever.
The team was in Washington, DC in celebration of the Word Series win last season and Ortiz presented Obama with a personalized Red Sox jersey and that’s what they are holding in the photo.
President Obama, a Chicago White Sox fan, told the team, that several members of his administration are Red Sox fans and praised the team for their championship and for bringing the city of Boston together in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings.
"Obviously, all the wins were sweet for Red Sox fans, but I think for the nation as a whole, there was something particular about this squad that was special and will go down in history," the president said.
He said the team represented the grit and resilience of one of America's iconic cities during one of its most difficult moments.
If you followed the Red Sox at all last season, then you know the story of the famous Red Sox beards. The president showed that he too was aware of the stories.
"I thought I invited the Red Sox here today, but there must be a mistake because I don't recognize all these clean-shaven guys," the president said.
And Big Papi captured the moment on what's sure to be one of the most Tweeted photos of the day. For more of his Tweets from the meeting, see his Twitter account.
