This year marks two important Astros anniversaries: the 50th anniversary of the Astrodome, the world's first domed sports stadium and "Eighth Wonder of the World," and the 10th anniversary of the 2005 Astros World Series run, which marked the first appearance by any Texas team in the Fall Classic. The Astros are hosting a 50th Anniversary Weekend presented by Coca-Cola, on April 17-18, with special giveaways including a Jimmy Wynn bobblehead and a 1965 replica model Astrodome. On August 14-15, the Astros are celebrating the Astros Legends Weekend, presented by Houston Methodist, featuring a 2005 NLCS T-shirt giveaway, a special Legends Luncheon and an on-field pregame ceremony with players from the 2005 team.
CRAIG BIGGIO'S CALL TO THE HALL
On January 6, 2015, Craig Biggio became the first Astros player ever elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame. The Astros will honor this historic accomplishment with three different Biggio-themed giveaways the weekend of July 31-August 2, courtesy of Coca-Cola, including a Biggio Hall of Fame bobblehead, a Biggio replica pinstripe jersey and a Biggio replica Hall of Fame plaque. Additionally, Craig Biggio will join the Astros on Saturday, August 22 for an on-field pregame ceremony, and fans will receive a Craig Biggio Hall of Fame T-shirt, commemorating the milestone achievement.
The 2015 promotions lineup will also include giveaway items recognizing popular, young stars on the current Astros roster. Jose Altuve's outstanding 2014 season, which included the first batting title in club history, will be commemorated with a Jose Altuve 'hit counter' bobblehead. The Astros will also highlight Dallas Keuchel's 2014 campaign, which saw him become the first Astros pitcher to win a Gold Glove and lead his league in complete games, with a Dallas Keuchel "Gold Glove" Gnome giveaway. The Astros will feature a George Springer replica jersey giveaway in recognition of the rising star, who rapidly won over Astros fans with his exciting style of play as a rookie last season.
