|

Bid Now

HOUSTON, TX - Beginning tonight, the Astros Foundation will raise funds during the current homestand at Minute Maid Park to aid victims of yesterday's tornado in Oklahoma.

The popular "Jerseys Off Their Backs" silent auction will be held through May 28 at the Astros Community Clubhouse on the main concourse. Fans can bid on several of the current Astros players game-worn jerseys. Winners will be announced on May 28. Fans can also make cash donations at the Community Clubhouse throughout the homestand.

Additionally, beginning this weekend, Astros players wives will sell Mystery Grab Bags containing autographed baseballs at the Community Clubhouse. 100% of all proceeds will go to the American Red Cross relief efforts for the Oklahoma tornado victims.

Yesterday's tornado struck Moore, OK, which is a suburb of Oklahoma City. The Astros' Triple A affiliate is in Oklahoma City.

"Our hearts and prayers go out to those affected by the tornado," said Astros President of Business Operations Reid Ryan. "We have close ties to that community and many friends there. Those are the folks that support us in Oklahoma City, so we're eager to do our part to help them out in a time of need."
