Derek Jeter and the rest of the Yankees will be in town to celebrate last year's World Series victory. The Yankees' White House trip will be one of many events to mark their win.
Before stopping at the White House, players will take the World Series trophy to the Walter Reed Medical Center in the nation's capital, where they'll visit with wounded soldiers.
Obama has stayed true to his Chicago team. He recently wore a White Sox cap while throwing the first pitch at a home opener for the Washington Nationals.
