The Astros World Series Trophy Almost Hit the Floor During an Event

By  | 

A writer for Chron.com recently attended the “One Great Night in November” event that takes place at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston. They write that this fancy, men-only occasion is usually full of finer things and goes off without a hitch, but this year, a table collapsed, causing the 2017 Commissioner’s Trophy (also known as the Astros World Series trophy) to slide off.

Yahoo Sports says that since guests were encouraged to take their photo with the award, many people were gathering near the not-so-sturdy table. When the table was tipped, someone managed to grab the trophy, but couldn’t do so without damaging it a little. Luckily, only a few of the flag poles were bent.

As Chron.com points out, the trophy couldn’t have been in a better place to take a tumble. The piece was relocated to the museum’s restoration room where it was swiftly fixed. And apparently, the fall didn’t bring down the evening one bit. The room was filled with major players, including Mayor Sylvester Turner, Houston Astros owner Jim Crane, and Houston Texans owner Bob McNair, yet the damage inflicted on the Commissioner’s Trophy became merely an annotation to the evening, and thankfully, not the major catastrophe that it could have been.
