Empower Magazine salutes the Houston Astros for their historic championship win and champion spirit!

For the first time in the Houston Astros’ franchise history, the team has brought home a World Series championship title after closing out the competitive and hard-fought series with a 5-1 win in Game 7 against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The team’s historic win brought massive crowds of fans to downtown Houston to celebrate the championship win and applaud the team for its victory.

City officials, players, team owners and managers and Astros Hall of Famers, Jeff Bagwell and Craig Biggio, rode in a celebratory parade in a rain of confetti to Houston’s city hall to join fans in savoring the historic win.

Not only was the win an exciting accomplishment, many on social media hailed the win as a healing moment for a city still in recovery from the damaging effects of Hurricane Harvey with the hashtag #HOUSTON STRONG.

Those that could not attend the historic downtown celebration, that according to reports drew nearly a million fans, watched televised coverage of the team’s victory parade and celebratory festivities at city hall from the comfort of their homes.
