Astros fans can snap photo of World Series Trophy Wednesday in Austin


The Houston Astros winter caravan will be in Austin on Wednesday, making three public stops with the World Series Trophy available for fans to see at two locations.

It’s the first time a World Series Trophy has ever made the rounds in the state of Texas.

Pitchers Brad Peacock and James Hoyt, third base prospect J.D. Davis and broadcaster Todd Kalas will be in Austin.

Major League Baseball’s champions will start with a mid-afternoon private stop at the Texas Military Forces Museum at Camp Mabry.

The public portion of the tour begins at 3:30 p.m. with a one-hour visit to Pluckers Wings Bar, 3909 South Lamar. This is not an autograph session, but the Astros contingent will be mingling with fans and playing trivia, with prizes awarded.

Next stop is Academy Sports & Outdoors, 5400 Brodie Lane in Sunset Valley for a one-hour autograph session from 5-6 p.m. Autograph passes will be distributed two hours prior to the start of the event and also are valid for one World Series Trophy photo opportunity.

The tour wraps up with a caravan jam at the Long Center, 701 W. Riverside Dr. from 5-7 p.m. Fans can enjoy live DJ music, inflatables, food trucks, face painters, caricaturists and more.

Players will make a 30-minute appearance from approximately 6:15-6:45 p.m. and participate in a Q&A and challenge some fans in attendance in interactive gaming. The World Series Trophy will arrive with the players at about 6:15.

All events are free of charge.
