Exclusive Buddies Opportunities
Player Autograph Sessions
The Astros Buddies program will host autograph sessions during the 2019 season. Each autograph session will have one of your favorite Astros players! Members will have the opportunity to enter for a chance to attend each autograph session. Members will receive a link to sign up for each Autograph Session via email, so make sure you are receiving Astros Buddies emails. The link will close 2 weeks prior to each Autograph Session and 250 members will be selected from those that registered. Each participant will be notified by email whether they were selected or not for the Autograph Session. Members will not need tickets to that day's game in order to attend the autograph session.
