LAS VEGAS — Monday afternoon afforded James Click a chance he cherished. He participated in a championship parade he helped to produce, weaving through the streets of downtown Houston while more than a million of its citizens cheered. Click gazed upon a city he’s called home for three years, marveling at its diversity and delirium around the one professional sports franchise that brings it joy.
Click rode on a float alongside owner Jim Crane, manager Dusty Baker and a host of players. The celebration ceased around 2 pm Click’s flight to Las Vegas for the general manager’s meetings departed around 8.
