The Houston Astros are headed to the World Series, where they will face the Los Angeles Dodgers, after beating the New York Yankees to be crowned 2017 champions of the American League (AL).
And what could be sweeter than the team's first-ever World Series championship following Hurricane Harvey, which devastated Space City just sevearl weeks before?
According to CNN, the Housotn Astros are the nation's sentimental favourite.
"In their 55 seasons, the Astros have never won a championship," the news station says.
"Just four years ago, they were the worst wrost in the majors."
And look at those Astros now! They have already made history as the first baseball team in history to represent both the AL and the National League (NL) in the World Series
