The Houston Astros are a professional baseball team based in Houston, Texas. They compete in the Major League Baseball (MLB) as a member club of the American League (AL) West division. They moved to the division in 2013 after spending their first 51 seasons in the National League (NL). The Astros have played their home games at Minute Maid Park since 2000.
In The 115th edition of the World Series, it was a best-of-seven playoff played between the American League champion Houston Astros and the National League champion Washington Nationals. The series was played from October 22 to October 30.
In the beginning of the World Series, the Astros were on a roll, but towards the end, The Washington Nationals caught up, and gained a win.
“The Astros were doing very good in the beginning of the World Series, but then they had a drastic turn-around, and lost,” Bailey Pauly (09) said.
In the end, the winner is always the one who does the best under pressure.
“They started off really good, but they could have done better in the end, and if they did, they definitely would have took home a dub,” Kaely Cisco (09) said.
Although they lost this year, the Houston team will have to work harder next season to make it to the World Series again. Winning may take a change in the coaching staff or players’ positions. The world will see what tactical moves they decide.
