The Houston Astros displayed incredible teamwork en route to the franchise’s first World Series championship, and, as it turns out, the team’s fan base can also demonstrate an impressive ability to work together.

As Astros fans lined balconies, sidewalks and streets Friday for the official World Series parade in downtown Houston, one lady dropped her hat from the eighth floor of a nearby building…but then something wonderful happened.

Twitter user @AlanEnokian captured the moment on camera.

Just like the Astros’ seven-game series against the Los Angeles Dodgers, there were dramatic twists and turns, momentum shifts, plus some clutch throws and catches.

The hat eventually ended up in the rightful owner’s hands. Flags waves and the crowd chanted “MVP! MVP!”

Once the video was posted online, it quickly went viral and even caught the attention of Houston Texans star J.J. Watt.
