On November 1, 2017, at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, the Houston Astros won Game 7 to become the World Series champions for the first time in the team’s history. Along with many other Houstonians, West was watching when the Astros finished their season with one final victory.

“When I saw that the Astros had won, I just yelled,” West said.

West has years of experience with baseball, including playing it himself and family members being involved with the sport.

“I’ve played baseball since I was about eight years old,” West said. “My dad has always coached, and I have always watched baseball with him and my brother. I still play baseball today.”

Many students at Lake claim Astros players George Springer, Jose Altuve, Justin Verlander, Alex Bregman, and Carlos Correa as their favorites. However, every member of the team contributed to the team’s World Series win.

“I don’t follow the players themselves as much, but I would say my favorite player on the Astros would be Evan Gattis,” West said.

With a team that soundly conquered the playoffs and contracts that won’t expire for a few more years at least on their star players, the Astros have another shot at postseason glory.

“I believe the Astros can keep it up next year,” West said. “As of now, I think they will make the playoffs next year, although I don’t know exactly how far they will go.”

Whatever their performance next year, Houston will always remember the Astros’ win in 2017.
