LOS ANGELES -- For the first time ever, Astros fans will have the chance to fire up the grills and fill the coolers before a home game.
On Saturday, June 2, tailgating will be permitted in Lot C for fans with a pass that is specific for that lot. It allows fans to bring grills, tents, chairs, food and alcoholic beverages.
The decision to allow a tailgating event comes as a result of input and advice from longtime fans, the club said.
Gates to the lot will open at 3 p.m. CT for the 6:15 p.m first pitch for the game against the Reds.
To buy parking passes and tickets for Lot C, fans can visit www.astros.com/tailgate.
The Astros may allow similar events in the future, the club said, but none has been announced yet.
