On top of the world

Locals root for the home team


Sealy residents were among millions who tuned in to watch the Houston Astros compete against the Los Angeles Dodgers in the World Series.

The series offered quite a few ups and downs, lots of homers, great plays at the plate, diving catches and hugs from Astros second baseman Jose Altuve.

Many locals were sluggish rolling into work on Monday after the ‘Stros came from behind three times to win Game 5 at Minute Maid Park, 13-12 in extra innings.

Some called it epic. Some will be seeing a doctor for additional blood pressure medication. Most just cheered on the hometown boys in their first-ever chance to take it all.

Our Austin County residents continued to root, root, root for the home team and it paid off. The ‘Stros earned history and brought home the first-ever world championship in franchise history. Congratulations from all your fans in Sealy and Austin County!
