Astros and Aces will celebrate their respective championships at the White House in August

President Joe Biden will host the Houston Astros and Las Vegas Aces at the White House next month to celebrate their respective titles.

The Astros will visit the White House on August 7 and the Aces will travel to Washington DC on August 25, the White House announced Monday. Both teams will be the last to make the traditional ceremonial visit to the White House this year after winning a championship.

The Astros beat the Philadelphia Phillies to win the World Series last fall, which marked their second title in six years. The Astros will make their visit before a three-game series against the Baltimore Orioles begins the following day at Camden Yards. The Astros are 54-42 Monday night, three games off the lead in the AL West.

The Aces beat the Connecticut Sun 3-1 to win the WNBA Finals last year, marking the first major professional sports championship Las Vegas has seen. The Aces will make their visit the day before they face the Washington Mystics. They hold a 19-2 overall record Monday night, which is good for the best record in the league, and they are yet to lose a game at home.

The LSU women’s basketball team and the UConn men’s basketball team traveled to the White House to celebrate their college basketball titles earlier this summer. The Kansas City Chiefs also celebrated their Super Bowl victory with Biden at the White House in June.
