    SportsPulse: This may be the most energetic World Series we’ve seen in a long time. For both teams, their exuberance on and off the field has been propelled by the joy often seen in Latin baseball culture.     USA TODAY

WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump was greeted with a thunderous chorus of boos from the sold-out crowd attendance at Game 5 of the World Series between the Nationals and Astros.

Trump, who showed up shortly after the first inning, was introduced to the crowd after the third inning during the Nationals ‘salute to veterans, a regular feature at Nats’ games.

As the next inning began, fans chanted “lock him up,” a nod to the motto that Trump supporters directed at Hillary Clinton in 2016.

Trump and wife Melania sat in the Washington Suite and were joined by a number of other politicians including Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) And Reps. Steve Scalise (R-La.), Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) And Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.), Among others.

Trump did not sit with the Lerner family, the principal owners of the Nationals. A representative for the Lerner family put in a request to MLB to not be put in position to turn down a request from the White House to sit with Trump,According to WUSA.

Trump has not attended a major league game since he took office in January 2017.

Every president since William Taft in 1910 has thrown out a ceremonial first pitch during their time in office, either for Opening Day, the All-Star Game or the World Series.

On Friday, Trump notified he did not want to throw out the ceremonial first pitch or make other public appearance “in order to make the fan experience as positive as possible,” MLB commissioner Rob Manfred said.
