Texas: Astro fans line up for gear (KTRK/CNN)

The wait is finally over!!

The Houston Astros are the 2017 World Series Champions.

They defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday night in game 7.

Thousands of fans went crazy from afar at Minute Maid Park in Houston.

This is the first World Series win for the Astros in franchise history.

Starting out in 1962 as the Houston Colt .45s, the Astros have spent nearly their entire existence out of playoff contention and made just one prior World Series appearance in 2005.

Final score Wednesday night was 5 to 1.
