2017 Season

WORLD SERIES CHAMPION

Houston Astros

Astros over the Dodgers (4-3)
World Series MVP: George Springer (HOU)

For the first time in franchise history, the Houston Astros have won the World Series. It was a touching moment for Houstonians as it allowed them to celebrate a special event just weeks after much of the city was devastated by Hurricane Harvey. With a young core of players that are in place for the next few years, the Astros should be very competitive in 2018 and beyond.
