Information on Richard Hidalgo autograph session Monday.
In addition to throwing out the ceremonial first pitch on Monday, April 30, former Astros outfielder Richard Hidalgo will also sign autographs from 6-6:30 p.m. CT on the main concourse behind home plate.
Hidalgo, who played for the Astros from 1997-2004, will be in Houston next week, and his visit prompted the Astros to add an extra alumni pitch to their season-long celebration of their 50th anniversary. Hidalgo will be the first of two former players to appear at Minute Maid Park during the next homestand. Rusty Staub will be there next Friday, May 4, as part of the Flashback Friday celebration.
Hidalgo’s autograph session will be free to the public. There will be a $25 charge for Staub’s, with all proceeds benefiting the Astros in Action Foundation.
