If you are planning to go to the game at Minute Maid Park tonight between the Astros and Tampa Bay rays, expect a larger than usual crowd for a Wednesday night.
All fans in attendance will receive a replica World Series Ring. This is the second time this season the Astros have given away World Series replica rings. The first time was back in April and only ten thousand fans got those rings. That led to people camping out overnight at Minute Maid Park. Team President of Business Operations Reid Ryan told KTRH the team is happy to be able to do this giveaway again.
“I think when people saw it the first time they realized how special it was,” Ryan explained. “The fact that we brought so much pride to this city, people want to memorialize this and the ring is the ultimate prize.”
First pitch tonight is at 7:10. Coverage on Sports Talk 790 starts at 6pm.
