The Washington Nationals won their first World Series title in franchise history on Wednesday, defeating the Houston Astros in seven games.

Well, the team announced they would be making the (short) trip to visit the White House after their victory, but that doesn't mean every member of the organization will be attending.

Whilte the trip to the White House is set for Monday, closer Sean Doolittle became the first Nats player to reveal that he wouldn't be attending the visit.

Doolittle has not specifically spoken out against Trump, but he and his wife, Eireann Dolan, are very involved in social and political issues and don't see eye-to-eye with the President.

It's not surprising that Doolittle will not be attending considering his stance on social issues, but it's certainly significant that the closer was so quick to reject the invite, having done so just hours after the team announced they'd be attending.

With Doolittle already making his decision clear, Nats fans will be waiting to hear what the rest of the team opts to do.
