Jose Altuve For The Pennant Walk-Off Home Run Poster
There was no way Astros second baseman Jose Altuve was escaping the field at Minute Maid Park on Sunday afternoon without having his jersey ripped off by his teammates.
Not after Altuve and the Astros had to refute speculation for the past 20 months that the reason Altuve refused to have his jersey removed in the celebration following his walk-off homer against the Yankees in Game 6 of the 2019 American League Championship Series because he was wearing a buzzer.
It was an unsubstantiated but juicy storyline that carried into this weekend for the Yankees' first trip to Houston since Altuve ended their 2019 season. Yankees slugger Aaron Judge even trolled Altuve by tugging at his jersey while rounding the bases following his homer Saturday night.
But it was the Astros who got the last laugh on Sunday when Altuve hit a dramatic three-run, walk-off homer to complete a stunning six-run rally in the ninth inning for an 8-7 win to send Houston into the All-Star break with a world of good vibes.
This Houston Astros poster makes for a perfect gift for the Astros fan in your life. It would complete any office, game room or man cave of an Astros fan. And you don't even have to worry about a frame - all prints ship framed.
