It is still unclear if this year’s World Series champions, the Boston Red Sox, will visit the White House and meet with President Donald Trump at some point, but one of the team’s players seems excited by the prospect.

While team owner John Henry and manager Alex Cora do not appear to be the biggest fans of the president, relief pitcher Heath Hembree (shown above right) has a different mindset when it comes to a potential visit.

After the Boston Red Sox won the World Series on Sunday night, TMZ found Hembree leaving a Los Angeles nightclub and asked him if he would be interested in visiting the White House.

To this, the athlete sounded excited and responded, “Hell, yeah! I f*** with Trump.”

Hembree was also asked what he liked about Trump. To this he said, “Everything!”

The pitcher’s political leanings were unknown to the public before this, but the Twitter account of the Spartanburg, South Carolina, native (a county where Trump won 63 percent of the vote in 2016) contained some hints.

He follows both the president’s accounts, (@RealDonaldTrump and @POTUS) and that of White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

A devout Christian who has tweeted out Bible verses in the past, Hembree also retweeted the president in December 2012, indicating he’s liked the president since before he ran for office.

Hembree has also shown respect for the military during his career.

In December 2015, he traveled overseas as a part of the USO Holiday Tour alongside his teammate, knuckleballer Steven Wright. As a part of the tour, the two players made stops in Italy, Djibouti, Afghanistan, Bahrain and Germany, where they met with service members and their families.

The Red Sox have not been invited to the White House as of yet — but if they are, they may or may not end up attending. On Monday, team owner John Henry, who also owns The Boston Globe, the city’s anti-Trump paper, said it’s possible.

“I think we will,” he said on Monday afternoon. “This is a special team. We’ll see what they want to do, but I think so.”

If it comes down to what the players want, then Hembree’s opinion counts for something — and the odds may be more likely that they will attend.

After all, 75 percent of MLB players’ political donations go to conservative causes, and the past two World Series championship teams — the Chicago Cubs and Houston Astros — both made the trip.
