BOSTON, MA (CBS) - Being booed was probably the last thing President Barack Obama expected from the crowd at a Symphony Hall fundraiser Monday night, but that happened when the president "thanked" Boston for Kevin Youkilis, who was just traded to the Chicago White Sox.

"I'm just saying, he's going to have to change the color of his socks," the president said laughing.

Youkilis was traded from the Red Sox, to Obama's favorite team on Sunday for infielder Brent Lillibridge and pitcher Zach Stewart.

"I didn't think I was going to get any boos out of here," he said. "I should not have brought up baseball, I understand, my mistake, you got to know your crowd."

Tickets for President Obama's fundraiser at Symphony Hall were between $250 and $2,500.
