BOSTON (AP) -President George W. Bush telephoned Red Sox president Larry Lucchino on Monday to congratulate the team on winning their second World Series title in four years.
Bush congratulated the team just before players, co-owners and other officials left Denver. He praised the contribution of Texans Josh Beckett and Mike Timlin, Red Sox spokesman John Blake said.
He also talked about his relationship with Red Sox co-owners John Henry and Tom Werner when all three were involved in ownership of Major League Baseball franchises, Blake said in a statement.
Bush was a general partner in the Texas Rangers from 1989 until his election as Governor of Texas in 1994. His interest in the Rangers was then placed in a trust until that ownership group sold the team in 1998.
