President Obama honored the World Series-winning Boston Red Sox at the White House today, but gave a little extra love to the team's designated hitter, David Ortiz. Much to the slugger's delight, the nation's commander in chief posed for what is believed to be his third presidential selfie.

Not long ago, Obama posed for one with Bill Nye the Science Guy and astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson. His most famous one, of course, is the selfie taken with British Prime Minister David Cameron and Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at the memorial service for the late former South African President Nelson Mandela.

"What an honor! Thanks for the #selfie, @BarackObama," Ortiz wrote in a tweet.
