The White House posted an announcement on its official website on Thursday about the Red Sox’ scheduled visit to honor their World Series win but made a pretty big typo in the headline.

Instead of “Red Sox” the headline named the team as the “Red Socks.”

The @WhiteHouse spelled @RedSox as "Red Socks" on its website and @YouTube pages ahead of today's event: "President Trump Welcomes the 2018 World Series Champions The Boston Red Socks to the White House" (it's now fixed). https://t.co/lZAttYHWMS pic.twitter.com/0cwmlanq0D

The typo was also on the YouTube page for the event and was corrected shortly after 10 a.m.
