Astros to allow tailgating for June 2 game

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.

The Astros may allow similar events in the future, the club said, but none has been announced yet.
