Red Sox to sport American flag jackets at White House

NBC Sports

When they head to Washington D.C. to meet President Obama as part of their 2013 World Series tour, the Red Sox will be sporting a very unusual jacket from an even more peculiar source.

Known for his big beard and wacky personality, Johnny Gomes played an integral part of Boston’s championship run and now he’ll play an even bigger role in their visit to the White House after gifting all his teammates an outstanding American flag blazer to wear when they meet the President.

And don’t think Gomes forgot about the POTUS, reserving a very special flag-themed jacket for the big man himself.
