The Thundering 13 was honored with an award at the Pines Theater in Lufkin Thursday evening.

Hospice in the Pines presented the "Labor of Love" award for those who go above and beyond and contribute in a positive way to the community.

It wasn't just the Lufkin community they brought together, but the state and nation as well according to Brannen Mullican with Hospice in the Pines.

The players said it wasn't just them they were celebrating tonight, but Texas baseball as a whole following the Houston Astros win on Wednesday night.

They credited the orange jerseys both teams wore in their World Series as their good luck charm.
