Watch thousands of Washington Nationals fans turn out for World Series victory parade
NbcnewsThousands of Nationals’ fans lined the streets of Washington, D.C., for a parade celebrating the franchise’s first-ever World Series win, which the team clinched Wednesday in a thrilling Game 7.
Most players were to participate in the parade, which is to be followed by a visit to the White House hosted by President Donald Trump on Monday.
For that event, at least one player, Nationals pitcher Sean Doolittle, has said he will not be going to the White House.
Doolittle said in an interview on Friday that President Trump’s rhetoric played a key role in his decision.
