President Obama congratulated Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez on their engagement

He might not be gearing up to play for the Yankees this year, but Alex Rodriguez had quite the offseason. Showing up at the Oscars, smashing snowballs with a bat in Central Park and bringing general merriment around with him wherever he went.

It was all capped off with a heartwarming engagement to the one and only Jennifer Lopez earlier this month.

The Lopez-Rodriguez wedding is sure to be quite the star-studded event, and celebs are already sending over their congrats to the happy couple. Including, most notably, President Barack Obama, former leader of the free world.

If it takes blasting 696 homers to get a personally hand-written congrats note on your engagement from President Obama, I better get to work in the batting cage.
