The Houston Astros are favored win the American League West and are considered serious World Series contenders again.

However, they have already added a title before the season even starts: best uniform in Major League Baseball. MLB asked fans to vote on the uniforms, and the Astros came out on top. MLB tweeted out the results on February 19.

While they are currently the third favorite to win the World Series at most sports books (behind defending champs Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees), they bested both teams in the all important best-looking uniform category.

The Astros, Yankees, Chicago White Sox, and Oakland Athletics were the final four in the American League voting, with the Astros coming out on top. In the National League, it was the New York Mets, Chicago Cubs, Colorado Rockies, and Los Angeles Dodgers.

Just like in the 2017 World Series, it was Astros vs. Dodgers — and we all know how that turned out.

The Astros are currently in Florida for spring training to prepare for the 2019 season. The team has a rich history with uniforms, going back to the famous rainbows of the 1970s.

The current incarnation was introduced in 2013, and now it is the best in the league, at least according to an informal Twitter poll.
