Red Sox manager John Farrell made sure he was by his telephone Monday afternoon. President Obama wanted to speak to him.
“Called to congratulate,” Farrell said. “Hopefully there’s a chance somewhere around Opening Day next year when we open up in Baltimore that we might be able to swing by [the White House] as a group and say hello.”
According to the White House, Obama commented on Farrell winning the World Series in his first season and the performance of Koji Uehara in the postseason.
He also asked Farrell to extend his congratulations to Series Most Valuable Player David Ortiz. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
