The Astros are picking up the tab to build a park dedicated to a six-year-old boy who died of a brain-eating amoeba last year.
Josiah McIntyre was a huge Astros fan who died last September, a few days after encountering the amoeba in Lake Jackson's water supply.
Educators set about raising 65-thousand-dollars to create an Astros-themed park in Josiah's memory.
An Astros Foundation executive showed up with a check for the full amount.
The park at Josiah's school is set to open on September 8th, the anniversary of his death.
