This year the World Series went down to the wire.  In game seven, the Houston Astros won for the first time in their franchise’s history.

The Houston Astros were first established as the Houston Colts.  They are in the American League West Division, having moved to the Division in 2013 after spending their first 51 years in the National League.  The Astros have been playing at Minute Maid Park since the year 2000.  The current name- reflecting Houston’s role as the control center of the US space system-was adopted three years later to move to the Astrodome as the world’s first domed stadium.  The Astros played in the National League from 1962 to 2012.  They played in the West Division from 1969 to 1993, and the Central Division from 1994 to 2012.  While a member of the National League, they competed in the World Series of 2005 against the Chicago White Sox in which they were swept in four of the seven games of the series.  In 2017, they became the first franchise in MLB history to win a pennant in both the American League and the National League.  

Many people believe this year’s World Series was the most exciting. I I thought the LA Dodgers were going to win because they have an amazing shortstop named Corey Seager and an even better first baseman named Cody Bellinger.  I wanted the Dodgers to win because the Astros beat the Yankees in the postseason, which is basically the playoffs.  The only thing that I am happy about is that  the first baseman is better than the shortstop because I am a first baseman. Cody Bellinger, on the Dodgers, the first baseman, was presented with the National League Rookie of the Year award and Aaron Judge won for the National League.  This is the most admired award for rookies.

I am hoping the Yankees make it to the World Series next year!
