Former TCU reliever Riley Ferrell received an invite to spring training with the Houston Astros this year - while he was hunting ducks. The third-round pick recounts growing up an Astros fan and the experience of getting his invite.
The Astros won the first World Series championship in franchise history beating the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-1 in Game 7 on Wednesday, Nov. 1, 2017. A crowd filled Houston's Minute Maid Park to watch a live feed of the game, which was played at the Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. The win was a welcome break for a city still recovering from Hurricane Harvey.
