This epic win is the first MLB championship in Washington Nationals franchise history! A celebratory parade will take place on Saturday at 2 p.m.
If there's one life lesson we've learned from the 2019 World Series, it's that sometimes you have to leave home to really flourish.

The Game 7 win in Houston hammered this message home, along with other memorable images from this incredible series. No one will ever forget the Year of the Baby Shark and how Gerardo Parra's infamous walk-up song galvanized Nats fans!
MVP Stephen Strasburg is unbelievably modest in his post-game interviews!
Even if your team is halfway across the country, a true fan can always celebrate with you in spirit.
In addition to countless watch parties, messages of support popped up all over the city, including the National Cathedral.
The Washington Wizards even got in on the fun, hosting their own Game 7 watch party for diehard D.C. fans.
Despite their loss, the Houston Astros kept it classy, tweeting their own message of congratulations to the Nationals.
Mayor Muriel Bowser's office has already announced a victory parade to welcome the team home, this Saturday, down Constitution Avenue. Plan on getting downtown early—the festivities start at 2 p.m.
Everything you need to know can be found in the mayor's late-night tweet. Text "NATS" to 888777 to receive the official alerts and updates. Roads are bound to be packed heading into the city, so start thinking of alternative transportation like Metro.
