HOUSTON ASTROS 2013 CAREAVAN

From January 21-26, Astros players, coaches and executives traveled far and wide through Texas and Oklahoma to connect the team with its fan base. CAREavan stops were centered on the club's three community pillars: military support, cancer research, and youth baseball and softball. Astros FanFest capped off the week with a baseball festival at Minute Maid Park.
