BOSTON (CBS) — The Boston Red Sox are set to meet President Barack Obama for the first time next week, and thanks to Jonny Gomes, they’re going to be looking extraordinarily patriotic.

The team tweeted a photo of the jackets which the players will sport for next Tuesday’s trip to the White House, and they are a red, white and blue sight to behold.

“Here are the amazing blazers Jonny ordered,” the Red Sox tweeted, adding the hashtag “#murica.”

Earlier, the Red Sox sent a tweet to Obama, telling him that a special order had arrived. Incidentally, they shared that the president is a size 40 long.

The Red Sox will make their World Series visit to the White House on April 1, one day after opening the season in Baltimore. The team has twice made visits as champions in the past decade, though both came when George W. Bush was the commander in chief.
