ASTROnomical! City celebrates World Series Win

ASTROnomical! City celebrates World Series Win”

This season marked the first World Series win in the Astros' 55-year history, much needed positive occasion following the devastation left in Houston by Hurricane Harvey. Watt, who is now rehabbing for a season-ending leg injury, also threw out the first pitch of World Series Game 3 while on crutches. In game two, the Dodgers had the lead after eight innings, which should have made their fans feel pretty good about their chances considering Los Angeles had been undefeated up to this point. A team that was the worst in baseball just a few seasons ago used tanking and great drafting to become an offensive powerhouse. He struggled in the World Series-particularly in Game 4-but undoubtedly was an integral player for the Astros during the regular and postseason runs.

The Houston Astros World Series trophy has had quite a ride in the week it's been in town. The multiple lead changes were attributed to six home runs in those three innings. Game Five saw the most three-run homeruns in one game with three. Both teams gave their all, as both teams had 14 hits, and one error each.

Every Astros player contributed to their championship win, but most notable was World Series MVP and right fielder, George Springer. Compared to last year's World Series Game 7 between the Indians and the Cubs, this Game 7 was pretty uneventful.

Records were broken. Dreams were fulfilled and shattered. "I'm from Anaheim, so I'm an Angels fan, so naturally I hate the Dodgers".

The city found a community leader in the Texans' J.J. Watt, who raised more than $37 million for hurricane relief efforts, and the Astros' first World Series championship gave Houston a reason to celebrate.
