UVALDE, Texas – The Houston Astros will bring their World Series Trophy to Uvalde on Thursday.

The trip is part of a tour around the state the team is taking this month after winning the 2022 World Championships.

The Astros call the trip “the caravan” It also includes stops in the Houston area and Corpus Christi.

On Thursday, the Astros Caravan arrived in Uvalde, with two players and a World Series trophy.

They visited Flores and Uvalde Primary Schools as well as Uvalde Civic Centre. They say they were thrilled to bring smiles to the faces of fans, young and old, here at Uvalde.

said Fernando Esquivel who brought his little league-playing son Brandon and nephew Derek to the Uvalde Civic Center to meet two of their idols. They skipped class today but they know school is important. Esquivel said, “Their mom is a teacher and their dad is a teacher but sometimes breaking a little bit from the norm is good for the heart, too.”

“I know the Astros will do everything they can to be here for Uvalde,” said third baseman Alex Bregman who made the trip, along with pitcher Lance McCullers. They say this stop in Uvalde is a must. McCullers told us, “The Astros want to be here for the city and the community and as individual players we want to be here. We want to show up and tell people we’re here to support them and that’s something we’re not going to just let it go.”

Fans brought all kinds of things for players to sign such as jerseys and pictures. They each got some shots with the trophy and the players themselves gave some advice to young and young footballers. Bregman said, “I think if your heart is in it you will train in this league to be where you need to be.” McCullers added, “Play the game with a smile on your face. It’s a fun game, so always remember that.”

The Astros say they are committed to helping Uvalde recover through baseball. The team hosted “Uvaldi’s Strong Day” in August, with ten residents’ buses participating in the game. Faith Mata, who lost her sister Tess Mata in the shooting, threw the first pitch.

For the Uvalde trip, the team tweeted that the Cup will be at the Uvalde Civic Center from noon to 2pm and the Shooting Stars will be at HEB on Uvalde’s Main Street from noon to 2pm.

On Tuesday, Astros and Shooting Stars players had an early dinner at Whataburger by the bay in Corpus Christi.
