Alternative Appearances and Destinations for the Astros Caravan
With all the players the Astros have cultivated in baseball academies across Latin America, a trip to South Texas is obviously in order. They'll need to beef up security to ensure no one is kidnapped by members of the drug cartel, but it's a small price to pay for one-on-one time with true fans.
Suggested Activity: Players participate in cavity searches with suspected drug runners at border check points.
Deep in the piney woods of east Texas, they love all things American, and what's more American than baseball? Of course, you might need to restrict access on this trip to some of the more, let's say, fairer skinned players and Bo Porter might want to sit this one out as well. But, hey, a fan's a fan even if they wear a white hood!
Suggested Activity: Let preacher perform laying of the hands ceremony on select Astros players. It couldn't make batting averages worse.
Sure, it's a hella long way to travel, but no locale is too far for the Astros caravan. In this bohemian community, there's a good chance they can solicit some financial support. My guess is most of the residents will make more per year than many of the Astro players. Bonus: Fake Marfa Prada store!
Suggested Activity: Knit your own uniform day with hippies that live in the desert. Hey, that dude with the beat up camping trailer has a satellite dish and might have the MLB package.
