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.”
