In this audio postcard, Houston Public Media's Jack Williams and William Menjivar were on-hand for the final out of the Houston Astros World Series-clinching win on November 5th, 2022. They captured the sound of the celebration inside the stadium and talked to fans afterward about what it meant to the city. Using other audio scenes, they were able to take listeners to the scene of one of the biggest celebrations in Houston history.   

Here was the lead we used on the air:  

Houston is still celebrating after the Astros’ World Series-clinching win against the Phillies Saturday night at Minute Maid Park. It was a memorable evening downtown as tens of thousands of fans poured into the streets after the big victory. News 88-7’s Jack Williams and William Menjivar (men-HEE-var) were there and sent back this audio postcard of one of the city’s biggest sports moments.
