Astros announce plans for Legends Weekend
NEW YORK -- The Houston Astros announced on Friday that the team's 50th anniversary celebration will culminate with Legends Weekend at Minute Maid Park. From Sept. 21-23, the Astros will don throwback jerseys that will match those given away to fans in attendance.

On Friday, Sept. 21, Houston will wear replica Colt .45s jersey (including the revolver), presented by Landry's, followed by the Shooting Star replica jersey, presented by Xfinity, on Saturday, Sept. 22, and the Rainbow replica jersey, presented by Farmers Insurance, on Sunday, Sept. 23.

Seven-time All-Star Craig Biggio will throw out the ceremonial first pitch on Friday to kick off the weekend.

The Astros will also hold a Legends Luncheon on Saturday at 11 a.m. CT, which will be attended by a multitude of Astros alumni and will include appearances by some of the franchise's most recognized former players. The team will hold a special pregame ceremony for all attending alumni prior to Saturday night's game, which will include a tribute to the all-time 25-man roster chosen by a panel of experts and fans earlier this season.

Tickets are now available for the luncheon and can be purchased online at astros.com.
