Statement on the passing of former President George H.W. Bush

Houston Astros Owner and Chairman Jim Crane released the following statement Saturday on the passing of former U.S. President George H.W. Bush: 

"President Bush was a great American who devoted his life to serving his country. He epitomized class and dignity and was a true patriot. 
 
"The Houston Astros had the great privilege of hosting President Bush and his wife Barbara at Astros games for many years. As loyal fans, they stuck with us through the challenging years and were there to celebrate Houston's first World Series championship in 2017. Game 5 of last year's World Series is considered the most memorable and dramatic game in Astros history. What made it even more special was that President George H.W. Bush and his son, President George W. Bush, were on the field that night taking part in the first pitch ceremony. 
 
"As our nation mourns his passing, our entire Astros organization sends heartfelt condolences to the Bush family. We will greatly miss him."
