Houston Astros have the opportunity to receive a free Houston Colt .45s jersey, just like the ones the players are wearing. All one has to do is be one of the first 10,000 people to get there on Friday when the Astros host the Los Angeles Dodgers.
This is the second and final time the Stros wear these uniforms this season. Check them out right here.
For a team that is not expected to be successful for a while, this is the type of stuff the Astros have to keep doing to keep the fanbase engaged and interested. Not that the local crowd isn't loyal anyway, but the Houston Texans are about to take this town over.
The Astros have a rich and prideful history that Houstonians cling to, which is why giving out the .45s is such an interesting gesture. There's going to be a line at Minute Maid Park on Friday longer than the Galleria traffic.
