George Springer and the Houston Astros soared to the top of the baseball galaxy, winning the first World Series championship in franchise history.
Wearing H Strong patches on their Jerseys, they won the big prize for a city that’s still recovering from Hurricane Harvey.
“That patch on our chests really does mean something. We’re coming home champions,” said MVP George Springer.
He homered and doubled in Game 7 to lift the Astros to a 5-1 win over the Dodgers in Los Angeles Wednesday night.
The center fielder called the win a “dream come true and an honor.”
After the Astros made history at Dodger Stadium, shortstop Carlos Correa proposed to his girlfriend, former Miss Texas USA Daniella Rodriguez.
She said “yes.”
