The Houston Astros will continue their whirlwind tour of the East Coast on Monday with a trip to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

The ballclub will be honored at the White House for their 2022 World Series Championship after they defeated the Philadelphia Phillies for the title.

The Astros organization, which will include players, manager Dusty Baker, and owner Jim Crane, will meet President Joe Biden at noon Houston time in the East Room.

The team’s first White House visit came in 2018 after they defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers for the title.

This will be the second visit for reacquired pitcher Justin Verlander, second baseman José Altuve and third baseman Alex Bregman. Retired catcher Jason Castro is expected to be there, too.

This second trip for Verlander comes after he rejoined the team last week in a blockbuster deal with the Mets and after he made his second first start with the team on Saturday. He gave up two runs in the Astros 3-1 loss at Yankee Stadium.

Still, it appears he plans to arrive to the nation’s capital in style, telling that he’ll rock a gold suit for the occasion.
