Astros Play Green, plant trees

By Rachel Frey

Chris Johnson joined members of the Astros front office staff and Keep Houston Beautiful to plant trees at the Houston Astros MLB Urban Youth Academy at Sylvester Turner Park this morning.

Twenty trees were planted to represent each home run hit by an Astros player at Minute Maid Park from the beginning of the season through part of June. This is part of the Astros’ Play Green® campaign to create a positive environmental platform at Minute Maid Park and throughout Texas. There will be another planting later in the season.
