Astros Will Play Home Series At Trop

The Tampa Bay Rays may be out of town, but that doesn't mean there won't be Major League Baseball at Tropicana Field this week.

The Houston Astros announced Monday afternoon that their series with the Texas Rangers, which was supposed to begin Tuesday at Minute Maid Park, will instead be played in St. Petersburg at the Trop.

The Houston metropolitan area has been devastated by the effects of Hurricane Harvey, which swept into the area over the weekend.

Fans who want to attend the games can purchase tickets at Raysbaseball.com/tickets.

"We are extremely grateful to the Tampa Bay Rays organization for allowing us to use their facility," Astros president Reid Ryan said in a statement.

The Astros will also be raising money from their Share2Care 50/50 raffle to benefit the American Red Cross and those who have been affected by the storm.

The Astros say their series next weekend against the New York Mets may also be played in St. Petersburg, but will make the final determination on whether those games will be played at the Trop or at Minute Maid Park will be made later this week.

The Rays are out of town on a nine-game road trip that ends Sunday in Chicago.
