Scheduled for 12:15 pm
It’s customary for the president of the United States to invite champions from many sports to visit the White House. Houston is taking advantage of an off-day in its Grapefruit League schedule to accept the invitation from President Donald Trump.
The tentative schedule has the Astros leaving West Palm Beach early in the morning, arriving at the White House around noon and returning to South Florida later that evening.
“If you’re going to spend an off-day doing something, other than relaxing, I think the White House is a pretty good gig,” [ace pitcher Dallas] Keuchel said.
