Catch Fly Balls—and Pokémon!—at an Astros Game
Fair-weather baseball fan? Minute Maid Park hears you! The ballpark is luring younger crowds with dress-up nights and—yes—Pokémon at games this week.
Pokémon: Catch Them All!
Astros v Toronto Blue Jays
August 3 at 7:10 p.m.
With nine Pokéstops around the park's perimeter and "lures" at the gates between opening pitch and the top of the second inning, Minute Maid Park is a downtown nexus for Pokémon trainers.
At Wednesday's game, don't miss the Pokémon social media contests and $1 hot dogs. And be sure to arrive early to walk around the stadium. You don't want to be scrambling to catch a scyther right before the game starts.
'80s Dress-Up Night
Astros v Texas Rangers
Saturday, August 6 at 6:10 p.m.
The young and young-at-heart '80s pop culture fans can come dressed to impress at the Astros throwback game. Ladies can channel Molly Ringwald and Madonna while the guys don their Top Gun flight suits.
The Astros Instagram account jokingly suggests vintage members-only jackets, acid wash jeans and hair perms. But if that’s too short notice, a bright scrunchy and wayfarers will do.
