George Springer tucked in the Commissioner's Trophy for the flight back to Houston

After winning their very first World Series at Dodger Stadium on Wednesday, the Astros headed home to Houston on Thursday. Although it was just a three-hour flight, players settled in after a long night of celebrating. Series MVP George Springer made sure not only that he was comfortable, but also the newest member of the championship squad:

So kind of you, George. I'm sure the Commissioner's Trophy appreciates the gesture. Please bring it some pretzels and ginger ale, too. Or peanuts. Whatever it wants, OK?
It'll need all the rest it can get for tomorow's Parade Day.
