HOUSTON -- Several Astros players will visit the Methodist Hospital on Fannin Street on Friday to interact with hospital patients and staff.

The annual All-Stars and Stripes event will feature first baseman Lance Berkman, center fielder Michael Bourn, left fielder Carlos Lee, pitcher Jose Valverde and Hall of Fame broadcaster Milo Hamilton. Junction Jack, the Astros' mascot, also will be on hand.

The day kicks off at 11:15 a.m. CT with two hours of fun and games with the staff and visits to patients around the hospital as part of the Houston Astros' commitment to service in the community.
