Astros defeat Dodgers 5-1 to win World Series

All 31 Houston-area Academy locations remained open overnight and still had lines well into Thursday afternoon, serving thousands of fans eager to buy shirts with the series logo and other gear in preparation for Friday's Astros parade downtown, said an Academy spokesman.

Astros centre fielder George Springer was named the Most Valuable Player of the World Series.

The Houston Astros' seven-game World Series win over the Los Angeles Dodgers averaged 18.9 million viewers on Fox, down 19 percent from the 23.4 million average for the Chicago Cubs' seven-game victory over Cleveland last year for their first title since 1908.

As the saying goes, to the victors go the spoils and the commemorative memorabilia.

The Astros will enjoy a victory parade through Houston's streets on Friday and the city's largest school district has cancelled classes so students can celebrate the World Series triumph.

The LA-based team last won the World Series in 1988.

Tearful Altuve said it was the "happiest moment in my life in baseball".

The Astros joined the MLB National League in 1962 as the Colt.45s, adopting their Astros name three years later in homage to the city's role in the US space programme.

Springer earned the award with huge swings, tying Reggie Jackson's World Series record with five home runs over the course of the series, including some incredibly clutch hits in the extra innings nail-biters that came to define the series.

Springer's five 2017 World Series homers from the leadoff spot surpassed Lenny Dykstra's four for Philadelphia in 1993.

And he admitted he had been thinking about the engagement for a few months. "Just couldn't be more proud of that, and we look forward to getting back with the trophy".

The Astros ran out comfortable 5-1 victors in the deciding game to spark emotional scenes in LA.

Yuli Gurriels's 21 postseason hits is a record for Cuban-born players in any single postseason.
