Here some Astros who are looking for their first World Series ring.

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Go with what got you to the dance, right?

Hours before the first pitch of the 2019 World Series, the Houston Astros released a roster they hope will get them another championship.

The roster includes 12 pitchers, two catchers, five infielders and six outfielders. The entire pitching staff is comprised of right-handers.

The Astros opted for continuity in their roster, using much of the same lineup from their AL Championship Series team for their matchup with the Washington Nationals.

Like the previous series this postseason, the Astros decided to keep Wade Miley, a starter for much of the regular season, off the World Series team.

In addition, there will be a number of players making their World Series debut on Tuesday night.

Here is the Houston Astros roster for the 2019 World Series:
