Astros statement on revealed portion of club's new identity

The Houston Astros released the following statement today.  “This morning, a portion of the Astros future brand went live on the Astros official website, which is managed by Major League Baseball Advanced Media (MLBAM). MLBAM has since corrected the error. Fortunately, only a small portion of the Astros new identity was posted on the site as a result of the error.

“The Astros entire new identity will be revealed at the club’s official Launch Party on Nov. 2 at 6 p.m. at Minute Maid Park. At this event, the new logo, game jerseys, batting practice jersey, caps and new mascot for the 2013 season will be officially revealed.”

All vouchers for the Launch Party have been claimed, but for those not in attendance, the Astros will stream the event live on
