Fans Meet Astros Stars At Sold Out FanFest Event

Thousands of fans are expected to pack into Minute Maid Park Saturday for the annual Astros FanFest.

Several Astros stars will attend the event, including

Jose Altuve, George Springer, Carlos Correa, Justin Verlander and

Alex Bregman.

Online admission vouchers are sold-out, but a limited number of free vouchers will be available at the box officer on a first-come, first-served basis.

Fans are advised to bundle up because the roof of Minute Maid Park will be open, and there is no heat in the building. The high Saturday is expected to be in the upper 40s.

The player autograph sessions are sold-out for adults. There’s a kids-only autograph area in section 222 for young fans, ages 5-12.

There are also other opportunities to get up close and personal with your favorite Astros, including the following
