Yes, we're aware that calling a tournament featuring only North American baseball teams the "World Series" is a bit of a misnomer, but this is neither the time nor the place for that argument.

It was a pretty big deal for Houston, considering 1) the Astros have never won the World Series before and 2) the city has been through quite a bit in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.

"We noticed a hat fall from near the top of the parking structure," says Pherigo, who told BuzzFeed News he and his wife were still waiting for the parade to pass when the fascinating fascinator fellowship unfolded.

"I remember thinking, 'well, that's a goner.' But then people started tossing it back up. And pretty soon it turned into this coordinated effort. People on the lower floors realized what was happening and sort of marshalled this effort to return the hat by communicating up what was going on."

"Everyone was extremely happy," says Pherigo of the vibe that day. "People were throwing confetti, little kids up on shoulders, high fives all around. This city has been through tough times lately, and you got the sense that people were glad to have a thing to collectively celebrate."
