Congratulations to the World Series Champions of 2017: the Houston Astros. After winning the ALDS 3-1 against the Red Sox, this team fought hard to beat the Yankees in the ALCS. It took seven games but they got it done, and it brought them to their first World series since 2005. They were able to out-play the Dodgers, and won the explosive series in seven games. This young team, with the guidance of seasoned veterans like McCann, Beltran and Verlander, ‘earned history’.
The first title in franchise history could not have come at a better time for the city of Houston, who was hit by hurricane Harvey in late August. Congrats to the city and the team, especially Gattis who was a janitor 10 years ago. Remember kids, dreams do come true.
