The Florida baseball team will take part in Collegiate National Champions Day at the White House in Washington D.C. on Friday.

The 2017 national champions will join other title teams (with the exception of football and basketball) from the 2016-17 academic year for a special recognition at the White House.

In addition, the team will be honored at a lunch reception and will have the opportunity to visit several national memorials in Washington D.C.
