Houston Astros’ Evan Gattis Has Gone From Homeless To World Series Champion

Of all the stories from the 2017 World Series, none is more compelling than that of Evan Gattis.

That journey finally came full circle this week, as a man who actually walked away from the game found himself standing on its highest summit.
