ASTROS VISIT WITH FIREFIGHTERS

Fourth Annual Sept. 11th Adopt-A-Firehouse Event Thanks Firefighters for Their Service

Houston, TX – On September 11th, four Houston Astros players visited local fire stations to thank firefighters for their service in recognition of September 11th. The players “adopted” the firehouse that corresponds with their uniform number and presented the firefighters with an autographed, framed jersey. Chick-fil-A provided lunch at each firehouse. Established in 2009, Astros players have now “adopted” 23 fire stations through the Adopt-A-Firehouse program.
