The Houston Astros are World Series champions.
And George Springer is now the World Series MVP. This home run is part of the reason why.
From 2015-2017, the outfielder has been a star. He is a star. But entering this postseason, the Astros’ outfielder was coming off his greatest season.
Then he would have a World Series for the ages. 11 hits, eight runs scored, and a triple-slash of .379/.471/1.000. That’s good for a 1.471 OPS. Oh, not to mention five home runs.
So congratulations to the Houston Astros. Congratulations one and all.
But an extra tip of the cap to the outstanding George Springer.
