Rowan Little League went undefeated in the Little League Softball World Series Championship, taking home the team's second title in four years.
The team was honored at a minor league baseball game in Charlotte on Tuesday night, but then the team received even more celebratory news: The White House invited the team to Washington to celebrate.
"As mentioned, we are thrilled to invite the Rowan Softball Little League World Series Champions to the White House. I will be in touch shortly with more concrete details. Congratulations once again, and we look forward to hosting you and the team at the White House," a statement said.
WSOC confirmed the team did plan to accept the invitation.
