Astros to kick off CAREavan Feb. 1

The Astros 2012 CAREavan will begin Feb. 1 with three full days of visits throughout central and south Texas, a trip to Oklahoma City, Okla. and five days in the Houston area. In addition to numerous private community stops, each day will include free public autograph sessions at Academy Sports and Outdoors stores.

The team will make two-day trips to Austin (Feb. 1-2), Brownsville, Harlingen and McAllen (Feb. 1-2) and San Antonio (Feb. 2-3), travel to Corpus Christi and Victoria (Feb. 3), and head to Oklahoma City (Feb. 6).  The team’s annual winter trek will also visit five different communities in the Houston area (Feb. 6-10).  More than 30 Astros players, alumni, coaches and front office staff will take part in the 2012 CAREavan.  A summary of the team’s activities and the players participating are listed below and a list of stops open to the public is posted at www.astros.com/careavan.

The 2012 CAREavan is part of a two-week winter baseball festival that includes the annual Baseball Dinner and the Astros In Action Foundation’s FanFest.  On Feb. 10, the Astros In Action Foundation and Minute Maid will host the 27th Annual Baseball Dinner benefiting the Grand Slam For Youth Baseball scholarship program.  This year’s dinner will highlight 50 years of Houston baseball.  Past Astros MVPs will be honored and the evening will feature awards given to current Astros and other area baseball standouts.

FanFest will be Feb. 11 from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. at Minute Maid Park.  The one-day fundraising event will feature autograph sessions, a garage sale of Astros merchandise, mystery grab bags and new experiences including the opportunity to run the bases.  Fans will be able to meet the new ownership group and hear from Astros General Manager Jeff Luhnow at Talkin’ Baseball sessions.  Proceeds from FanFest benefit the Astros Urban Youth Academy.  Information about CAREavan, the Baseball Dinner and FanFest is available at www.astros.com/community.
