After they wrap up a three-game set at home against the Cubs on Sunday, the Giants will head east to face the Phillies on Tuesday, July 30.  On their day off on Monday, the defending World Series champions will visit the White House and meet with President Barack Obama for the second time in three years.

Via MLB.com’s Chris Haft:

The President also will honor the Giants for their extensive community-service endeavors. Additionally, it has been rumored that Hall of Fame center fielder Willie Mays, the Giants legend who traveled with Obama on Air Force One to attend the 2009 All-Star Game in St. Louis, will be singled out by the President.

The Giants can expect to be joined by a host of VIPs. For their previous visit, the full house in the East Room of the White House included Senator Dianne Feinstein, then-House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and former defense secretary Leon Panetta.

Brian Wilson, pictured above, wasn’t in the bullpen when the Giants defeated the Tigers last year. He may find a new home soon, however.

    I hope Brian Wilson takes a flight with the team and works out a deal.

    Dianne Feinstein, Pelosi, Obama. How many more corporatists can you fit into one room? Just need Bush

    Interesting that they didn’t wait two weeks more when they play in D.C.
