The Houston Astros are 1-2 against the Boston Red Sox in the American League Championship Series, and we couldn’t be more thrilled that our hometown team is playing in the postseason and may head back to the World Series for the second year in a row.
While we’re keeping our eyes firmly on the prize, we wanted to give a shout out the MLB’s best and share 3 reasons why #UHBauer ♥s the Houston Astros.
Talent Wins Games. Teamwork Wins Championships.
This is one team that’s fun to watch on the field and off. They’re all about teamwork, whether it’s making a killer play, cheering each other on or tousling each other’s hair. It’s obvious to everyone that not only do they each love playing baseball — they love playing baseball together, on this team.
Timing Is Everything.
This is a team that understands what it takes to build something from the ground up. In 2013, General Manager Jeff Luhnow shared with Bauer alumni his vision for taking the Astros to the World Series, and four years later, that vision turned to reality, bringing home a victory that seemed to come at the perfect time for a city ready to rebuild from Hurricane Harvey.
We Don’t Follow the Trends. We Set Them.
In an era of memes, gifs and viral trends, the Houston Astros are unquestionably Major League Baseball’s trendsetters. Nearly every moment in the dugout and on the field is guaranteed to be captured and shared online immediately after each game for everyone on social media to enjoy.
