ATLANTA — Before the World Series arrived in Atlanta, the Braves announced that former president Donald Trump would be attending Saturday night’s Game 4. 

Saturday afternoon, just before 1:30 p.m. Eastern Time, Trump sent an email to his mailing list, which read, in full: “Looking forward to being at the World Series in Atlanta tonight. Thank you to the Commissioner of Baseball Rob Manfred, and Randy Levine of the great New York Yankees, for the invite. Melania and I are looking forward to a wonderful evening watching two great teams!”

However, MLB disputes Trump’s characterization of events. In a statement to Yahoo Sports’ Hannah Keyser, MLB officials indicated that Trump, as previously reported, had requested to attend the game. 

In a USA Today story earlier this week, Atlanta Braves CEO Terry McGuirk said, “He called MLB and wanted to come to the game. We were very surprised. Of course, we said yes.’’ MLB officials backed McGuirk’s accounting of Trump’s invitation.
