Our pal, George (@AstrosFansUK), travelled around 4,800 miles to come to Houston, Texas to watch his favorite baseball team in person for the first time. Some of the Apollo guys got to go with George on his first trip into Minute Maid Park for a ballpark tour before Monday’s walk-off win against the Rangers. How can you not be romantic about baseball?
This video truly made me think of how lucky we are that we can go to our favorite teams’ games almost whenever we please. George has been a fan for a long, long time, and Monday night was the first time he ever got to watch the Astros in person.
I remember my first time walking into Minute Maid Park, and the feeling was one of euphoria. I can’t imagine how George felt coming all that way for his first time inside the home of the 2022 World Series Champions.
Not to mention, the guy got to throw out the first pitch for Sugar Land the night before. Just an all-time trip for George and he’s going to be here all week long!
If these moments don’t give you chills, you just don’t get it. How can you not be romantic about baseball?
