President Donald Trump is inviting the East Bank Little League Champions to the White House.
The President tweeted from the G7 summit in France that he would see the team in Washington as a response to Louisiana congressman Steve Scalise who first brought up the idea.
The East Bank Softball team also played well in their tournament making it all the way to the finals where they were defeated by Portland.
A celebration parade for both the Louisiana baseball and softball teams is being planned for next week.
