Los Angeles, CA

For the first time in franchise history, the Houston Astros are World Series champions. After beating the Los Angeles Dodgers 5 to 1 in Game 7 on Wednesday night (November 1), Astros’ fans erupted with celebrations following the historic victory — both on and off line.

Astros’ center fielder George Springer, who collected the Willie Mays World Series Most Valuable Player Award, told ESPN, “This is a dream come true and an honor. But it’s about the Houston Astros tonight, our city, our fans. That patch on our chests really does mean something. We’re coming home champions.”



Members of the Hip Hop community also came out in droves to show their support for the H-Town team, including Lil Wayne, Chamillionaire, Big Boi, an over-the-moon Paul Wall, Chuck D, DJ Premier, Big Sean, Travis Scott and Flavor Flav.
