The Houston Astros celebrate defeating the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-1 in game seven to win the 2017 World Series at Dodger Stadium on Nov. 1, 2017 in Los Angeles.

It's the Astros! For the first time in the franchise's 56-year history, Houston Astros are the World Series champions. The Texas team strolled past the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-1 to win Game 7 and the title.

It was no fluke. The one-time cellar-dwellers had a stellar season winning 101 times to take the AL West, before claiming games 6 and 7 at home in the AL Championship Series (The Dodgers won a Major League-best 104 games this season). 

This was more than just a title win. The Astros were carrying the hopes of a city devastated by Hurricane Harvey, its players wore an H Strong logo on their jerseys.

As the Astros' long suffering fans rejoined, musicians and celebs congratulated the team on a well-deserved -- and long overdue -- win.
