All-Star recognized with Altuve Day in Houston
HOUSTON -- Houston mayor Annise Parker declared Tuesday "Jose Carlos Altuve Day" in recognition of Altuve's All-Star season. Altuve said he first found out about the proclamation on Tuesday morning.

"I've been working really hard in my career with the Houston Astros," Altuve said. "It's my second year and it's an honor for me that [they] named it Jose Altuve Day today."

Councilman James Rodriguez presented Altuve with the proclamation in a ceremony before Tuesday's game against the Cardinals. After outlining Altuve's career accomplishments in the document, the city expresses its gratitude.

"The City of Houston commends Jose Carlos Altuve on his impressive accomplishments with the Houston Astros and extends best wishes for continued success. Therefore, I, Annise D. Parker, Mayor of the City of Houston, hereby proclaim Sept. 25, 2012, as Jose Carlos Altuve Day in Houston, Texas."

After missing Monday's game with a minor groin injury, Altuve was back leading off for the Astros on Tuesday. He entered the game batting .291 with five homers, 35 RBIs and 33 stolen bases. His 49 multi-hit games rank ninth in the National League.
