SHOW TRANSCRIPT

On Monday the Houston Astros visited the White House to celebrate their 2017 World Series Championship. 

President Donald Trump congratulated the team on its first ever World Series win, which he noted happened following the destruction of Hurricane Harvey.

"It's a really befitting tribute," Trump said.

A few team members were absent: Carlos Beltran, who retired after last year, all-star shortstop Carlos Correa and Ken Giles. The team says all three skipped the event due to family obligations.
