Houston Astros fans get ready...Orange Out! It's Orange Day around the city in support of the Houston Astros matchup today against the Boston Red Sox. The ALDS playoff game is slated for 3 pm at Minute Maid Stadium today.
Houston mayor Sylvester Turner made the announcement during a pep rally for the city Wednesday. Mayor Turner was joined by Astros Owner, Jim Crane who spoke on the steps of city hall during the rally for today's big game.
The ceremony was done to lift spirits here after Harvey, *and* in Puerto Rico, where some Astros players have families.
"We are Houston proud and we are Houston strong," said Mayor Sylvester Turner during the rally on Wednesday.
