Orbit threw sandwiches to Astros fans at Chick-fil-A, because it's Orbit and that's what he does

The Astros Caravan kicked off Wednesday and members of the team made public appearances across the Houston area. The event continues through Friday, the day before FanFest at Minute Maid Park on Saturday. One of the first stops on the caravan happened to be a Chick-fil-A, where a scheduled meet-and-greet took place with Brady Rodgers and Forrest Whitley. However, Orbit had to be a part of the action.
In true Orbit form, he threw things to the crowd: chicken sandwiches.'s Alyson Footer caught the action when the beloved mascot walked behind the Chick-fil-A counter and started throwing sandwiches:

Everyone around appeared to be ecstatic -- and why not? Who doesn't love free sandwiches being thrown at them by a fluffy green alien?
