Free tickets for kids all summer. Yes, I said free.

The Astros are offering a unique opportunity that will surely make going to ballgames this summer more affordable for families. In conjunction with Minute Maid, the Astros introduced “Kids Free All Summer,” where kids 14 and under will receive a free ticket, with the
purchase of one full price adult ticket.

Up to two children can get in free with each purchased adult ticket. The offer is available in the  Mezzanine level, View Deck 1 level, and View Deck 2 level. The two sections total over 10,000 seats, and this ticket offer will be based on availability.

The special runs begins when the team returns from its upcoming three-city road trip. The next homestand starts June 23, and the “Kids Free All Summer” offer runs through Aug. 23.

“The Houston Astros are proud to partner with Minute Maid to bring our fans this exciting new ticket offer,” club owner Drayton McLane stated. “With the current economic climate, we felt it was important to create an opportunity for more families to bring their kids to Astros games this summer.”

The pricing for the full price adult tickets are as follows: Mezzanine – $20; View Deck 1 – $15;
View Deck 2 – $12.

Tickets for the “Kids Free All Summer” promotion will be available for purchase starting Friday, June 12th at 9 a.m. at the Astros Box Office or online at

The “Kids Free All Summer” promotion is one of many affordable options that the Astros are offering fans this season. The “Price Matters” package presented by H-E-B, which is for 10 select dates, offers fans the opportunity to purchase a ticket, hot dog, potato chips and a soda for just $10. The “All You Can Eat Thursdays” promotion includes a ticket and all you can eat for just $20 for all Thursday Astros games.

The Astros also offer a $4 Kids Meal at every game. Additionally, for several years, Outfield Deck seats have been available for just $1 for kids and $7 for adults. With this option, a family of four can attend an Astros game for just $16.

Wow, thats really cool!

Maybe this is their way of making up to the fans who are less than pleased with their “No outside food allowed into the ballpark” policy. Nonetheless, this is a very nice offer. Will you be able to purchase these tickets on the website or do you have to do buy them at the box office?

John, you can purchase them on line or at the box office, either one….

I couldn’t care less about the “free tickets”. Drayton needs
to sign another GOOD starting pitcher, and get another
GOOD manager!! This team will go NO WHERE with this broken down pitching staff, and a manager who has NO idea what he is doing…..or this team will end the season in LAST PLACE!! Bet on it.
