The Astros—whose first season was in 1962—are World Series champions for the first time in franchise history, defeating the Dodgers 5-1 in Game 7 at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles and completing a Fall Classic for the ages. Springer, unanimously voted the Willie Mays World Series MVP, referenced the inspiration of the Astros' fan base that is recovering from Hurricane Harvey. "That patch on our chest truly does mean a lot to us," Springer said. "I'm so happy for all of our fans, who have endured a lot. We're coming home champions."
