This 14 July 2018 Major League Baseball video from the USA says about itself:

Watch Bogaerts’ walk-off grand slam, Red Sox comeback

Xander Bogaerts caps off the Red Sox amazing comeback over the Blue Jays with a grand slam.

Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:

Dutch national team baseball player Bogaerts says no to Trump after grandslam home run

A month after Xander Bogaerts became the best-earning athlete in the Kingdom of the Netherlands with his new mega contract at Boston Red Sox, he hit a grand slam home run in Major League Baseball for the fifth time in his career.

The Aruban did so on Sunday night in the eighth inning of the game against the Chicago White Sox, thereby leading his team to a 9-2 victory. Bogaerts hit the ball over the fence with all three bases occupied.

Bogaerts will not go to White House

After the game, Bogaerts again made a statement by stating that he will not go to the White House on Thursday, where his team will be honoured by President Donald Trump for winning the World Series last year. …

A number of other players and coach Alex Cora are not going either. Cora protests against Trump’s statements about hurricane Maria in his native Puerto Rico. The American president denied that thousands of people had died in that natural disaster.

In recent years, nearly half of the invited sports teams – such as [American football] Super Bowl winner Philadelphia Eagles – boycotted the White House out of discontent with Trump and his policies. National Basketball Association champions Golden State Warriors were also critical of Trump and were not even invited in advance.
