Buying T-shirts and touring Astros clubhouse: no longer mutually exclusive.
Round one of the two-day Clubhouse Extravaganza on Friday turned the Astros’ locker room area into something resembling your favorite department store at Christmas time. It was just your garden variety end-of-season bargain bonanza where, delightfully, everything must go.
The Team Store in Union Station is lovely and inviting, don’t get me wrong. But what’s more fun than buying drastically marked-down items while peering into Bud Norris’ locker?
The Clubhouse Extravaganza, which features licensed Major League Baseball clothing items and game-used memorabilia, including jerseys, bats and baseballs, will continue on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
In addition to shopping in and touring the clubhouse, fans will have the opportunity to take photos with Junction Jack and sit in the Astros dugout. Dollar hot dogs and soda will also be available.
Admission to the event is $10.00, which will be applied to the purchase of merchandise. Free parking will be available in the Diamond Club lot.
