Life is sweet for Astros after World Series win

Houston Astros fans celebrate before a parade honoring the World Series baseball champions Friday Nov. 3 2017 in Houston

George Springer, Alex Bregman, and Jose Altuve surprised new baseball fan and comedian Leslie Jones during the last segment of Weekend Update.

Following the Cubs' lead from past year, some of the Astros made a guest appearance during the "Weekend Update" segment.

Just days after the Houston Astros won the World Series, some of the team's members stopped by the Weekend Update desk on Saturday Night Live to pay studio 8H a visit. The week kicked off with the Astros earning history as the 2017 World Series Champions.

"Since we already know that you don't actually watch baseball, we wanted to give you a gift today", Springer quipped as Bregman handed Jones a custom Astros jersey so she could "jump on the bandwagon, too". More than 750,000 people attended the parade Friday to celebrate the Astros' World Series victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers. Altuve also handed Jones an Astros hat and signed baseball. She started the bit as a Yankees fan, talking about how fine she thinks players like Gary Sanchez are.

She then took back what she had said about them before - and even let Altuve sit on her lap.
