na Laiana Wong (ka lā 4 o Nowemapa, 2017)

Synopsis: The Houston Astros are the 2017 Major League Baseball champions, having defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers in a hard fought seven game series. Houston centerfielder George Springer, who had a tremendous series both at the plate and in the field, was named MVP. His real MVP work, however, might be what he does off the field.
