On Friday (Oct. 5), the Houston Astros will begin their quest for another World Series Title. Last year after Harvey, the Astros added “Houston Strong” patches to their uniforms and the city of Houston on their backs, which culminated in a 2017 World Series Championship, ending with a celebration on the steps of city hall . 

Houston’s fans, Mayor Sylvester Turner and members of the Astros organization all gathered back on those same steps at city hall.

Owner Jim Crane, general manager Jeff Luhnow, and players Tony Kemp and Ryan Pressly met with fans to kick off their 2018 postseason run. The Stros’ will start their run against the Cleveland Indians on Friday.
