Former River Bandits Win World Series With Astros
When World Series hats and the Commissioner's Trophy were handed out to the Houston Astros at Dodger Stadium last night, former Quad Cities players were amongst the victors.
Astros players Carlos Correa (2013), Alex Bregman (2015), George Springer (2014), Chris Devenski (2013) and Evan Gattis (2017) all spent time with the Quad Cities River Bandits, the farm team for the Astros squad.
All in all it's been a banner year for the Astros organization with both the parent club and the River Bandits winning their league championship.
And for Carlos Correa even more so, as he proposed to his girlfriend during the on-field celebrations. She said "yes."
Congrats to all, and remember, pitchers and catchers report in about three months.
