The next President of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO9 is a huge fan of baseball, and he has shown that plenty of times in social media. Recently, AMLO posted in his Twitter account his prediction for the World Series, as he stated that Dodgers and Astros will play a rematch for the 2017 Fall Classic.
Contradiciendo al gran filósofo que sentenciaba que «la historia no se repite», la final del béisbol de grandes ligas volverá a ser como el año pasado. Apuesto a Houston por sus peloteros latinos, y voy Dodgers por su afición mexicana. Esta es mi quiniela.— Andrés Manuel (@lopezobrador_) October 10, 2018
Astros General Manager, Jeff Luhnow, answered AMLO's post and invited the elected President of Mexico to ALCS game at Houston next week against the Boston Red Sox at the Minute Maid Park.
Luhnow was born and raised in Mexico City from American parents, as he considers himself a Mexican-American. Luhnow is fluent in Spanish and he is one of the main supporters of the idea of an MLB franchise located in Mexico.
