Giants Visit Obama

President Barack Obama on Monday praised the World Series champions, the San Francisco Giants as the "characters with character" in the majors.

Obama in the White House received the Giants to celebrate their overwhelming victory 4-1 in the series against the Texas Rangers in the Fall Classic last year.

The president was also accompanied by some lawmakers as the leading Democrat in the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, and the legend of the Giants, Willie Mays.

Obama said that Mays was an outfielder of 23 years old when the Giants won their last World Series in 1954.

Obama also highlighted the work of lanky pitcher Tim Lincecum, known as "The Phenomenon", and reliever Brian Wilson, famous for a long beard and a weird outfit. Obama said the Giants would be "a little different," but "one thing they have shown is how to win."
