Impact a hero weekend at Minute Maid Park salutes our bravest.
The Astros dedicate at least one day per homestand to recognizing our men and and women who are serving, or have served, in the Armed Forces, and that trend continued on Saturday with the sixth annual Impact a Hero weekend.
The goal of the weekend is to bring a message of appreciation to the troops, and the Astros gave more than 40 wounded heroes and their guests tickets to Saturday’s game in addition to hosting a meet and greet with the Astros players.
Impact A Hero was created to provide a simple mechanism for individuals and corporations to help provide emotional and financial support for severely wounded and disabled War on Terror veterans and their families.
Here are some images from the pregame meeting with the players:
