April 1 (UPI) -- Boston Red Sox star David Ortiz couldn't resist a presidential selfie when the 2013 World Series champions visited the White House on Tuesday.

"And of course, the legend. The only man to play for all three championship teams," Obama said of Ortiz. "The biggest bat in the dugout. Big Papi. Big Papi. That’s what I’m taking about. Love this guy. Even a White Sox fan can appreciate these guys."



In return, Obama snagged an "Obama 44" Red Sox jersey.
