If the Astros can force a Game 7, they'll get a little boost from none other than Ric Flair

The Astros aren't getting ahead of themselves at the moment -- down 3-2 to the Yankees in the ALCS presented by Camping World, they need a win at home in Game 6 tonight (8 p.m. ET/7 p.m. CT on FS1) to keep their season alive. But if Justin Verlander and Co. do manage to stave off elimination, they'll get quite the boost heading into a winner-take-all Game 7: a pregame "WOO!" from none other than Ric Flair.

Reddick, of course, is a diehard WWE fan who's been known to celebrate the Nature Boy at every opportunity -- even, as you can see in the photo above, with his wardrobe. (Houston fans have even gotten into the act this year.) He's struggled so far this series, going 0-for-17, but the prospect of bringing Flair to Minute Maid Park might be just the thing to snap him out of it.
