The Houston Astros might’ve clinched another AL West title on Thursday, but that doesn’t mean their regular season is over just yet. The October promotional schedule is here, as Minute Maid Park will host a three-game set to close out the season.
The Oakland A’s are rolling into town with nothing to play for except to keep the Astros from not clinching home-field advantage in the ALDS. So, the promotional team is giving fans another reason to fill Minute Maid Park this weekend.
It might be the A’s playing, but why not show up for the Astros’ latest promotions instead?
Friday 10/1: Replica Phillips 66 HR Pump
The first promotion of October goes to the first 10,000 fans. The replica home run pump comes with number changing dials, so you can keep up with the Astros’ current home run total.
From 5-7 p.m., the Astros will also be hosting Pregame Happy Hour, and then Friday Night Fireworks after the game. The theme is ‘For the H.’
Saturday 10/2: Alex Bregman Replica White Jersey
This has been a reoccurring promotion this season and in years past, as the replica white jersey goes to the first 10,000 fans. The promotion is sponsored by H-E-B and will have ‘Bregman’ and the No. 2 on the back.
Sunday 10/3: Yuli Gurriel Hair Bobblehead
The first 10,000 fans at the last regular season game of the season will get a one-of-a-kind Yuli Gurriel bobblehead, showing off his pineapple-like hair. The first baseman is portrayed with his arms crossed, holding his hat in hand, while his hair is spiked up and held up by a headband.
Sunday is also Fan Appreciation Day and Kids Run the Bases after the game. Kids must be five-years-old to 12-years-old to participate.
