They did it! The Astros won game 7, and the World Series! This is the Astros first World Series win in franchise history, so you can imagine all the excitement happening in Houston right now. Ending the game last night with a 5-1 score, this has been one of the most entertaining World Series in history. Both Houston and Los Angeles set records for most home runs in a single World Series, and both entered the Series with an almost equal amount of wins in the regular season (Los Angeles winning 104 games, Houston winning 101).
Despite Hurricane Harvey and not being able to play in their home park for several games, the Astros rose above it all and brought home the W for their city. They have also been sporting patches on their jerseys right above their hearts that say “strong”. This proves that this win wasn’t just for the Astros, but for Houston. We at HFR want to congratulate the Houston Astros for winning the World Series against all odds!
If you want to join the Astros in celebrating this victory, heading downtown Houston this Friday, November 3rd, at 2 p.m. The parade and Mayor Sylvester Turner will honor the players, coaches, staff, and families of the team. The parade will start on Smith St. at Lamar, proceed north on Smith, east on Walker, south on Milam, west on Pease, north on Smith, and ending at Lamar Street. Make sure you get there with plenty of time to park!
