October 7th, 2021

The American League West champions gave fans a first dose of playoff excitement Tuesday evening, thanking the city for its support ahead of this week’s AL Division Series against the White Sox while running back some memorable moments from Houston’s recent run of success.

The Astros find themselves in the postseason for the fifth consecutive year and are looking to return to the World Series after falling short in the AL Championship Series last season. The club is led by the same core group that won the 2017 World Series, with additional offense provided by breakthrough outfielders such as Yordan Alvarez and Kyle Tucker.

Highlights from the Astros' hype video above include a look back at some magic moments from Houston’s season, including big plays from Jose Altuve, Alex Bregman and others.
