The 2009 New York Yankees players, coaches, front office and staff were congratulated by President Obama for their World Series victory last year. Barack made a terrific speech in my opinion, and brought some humor with him as well. He than took the time to shake everyone’s hand who was affiliated with the team. The core four may have done this with previous presidents, but this must have been quite the experience for some of the younger members of the organization. All in all, this was quite an exciting day for Yankees fans. Here is a copy of Obama’s speech transcript, and you can take a look at the video of the speech and photos below.

From the Yankees Official Website:

The trophy moved on Thursday from Beijing Airport to Hong Kong, arriving on Delta Airlines at approximately 2 p.m. China Standard Time (13 hours ahead of U.S. Eastern Standard Time). Upon arrival, fans greeted the trophy and the Yankees delegation.

On Friday, the trophy is scheduled to be displayed at the Grand Hyatt Hotel, where fans will be able to enjoy the trophy in its final public appearance in Asia. The Hyatt Regency hotel will then host a brief press conference featuring the Yankees delegation and introducing the trophy to fans.

Additionally, Afterman will attend the opening ceremonies for the Hong Kong International Women’s Baseball Tournament on Saturday morning, throwing out the event’s first pitch.
