U.S. first lady Michelle Obama (L) and President Barack Obama applaud during an event celebrating the 2011 Major League Baseball World Series champions St. Louis Cardinals in the East Room of the White House January 17, 2012 in Washington, DC. Noticably absent from the congratulatory event are the team's former 1st baseman Albert Pujols and former manager Tony La Russa. The Cardinal's visit to Washington will include a stop at Walter Reed Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, to visit with patients and their families.
