Larry Dierker Chapter monthly meeting (Houston, TX)

The Larry Dierker Chapter will hold its next monthly meeting at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 19, 2017, at Minute Maid Park in Houston. All baseball fans are welcome.

The meeting will take place in the on the third floor of the train station starting at 5:00 PM. Our guest speaker will be Astros president Reid Ryan and Jimmy Wynn will be with us too.

Please note the new time! Due to policy changes by the Astros, all attendees to our meeting and the game Saturday must enter the ballpark through regular entrances. Since there will be 44,000 attending the game with a terrific promotional piece, the lines will be long. There will be no special door for us as in the past. Accordingly, we have changed the time of our meeting from 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM with the hope that the lines will have diminished considerably after 4:45 for easier entrance. There will be little or no room for additional attendees. Thanks for your understanding.

We have reserved 45 tickets in the Field Box IV area for the game between the Astros and the Oakland A's at $44 each. As you may have observed, getting good seats to see the locals is getting harder and harder as the team continues to dominate the AL West. In addition, on the 19th, there will be a bobblehead giveaway featuring Biggio, Bagwell, and Hampton which may well ensure a complete sellout.

Tom Plemons has volunteered to collect the ticket money for us and we must have your checks by no later than July 22nd. Please bring your check to our next monthly meeting on June 19th or mail it — made out to the Houston Astros — to Tom Plemons, 16011 Mill Point Drive, Houston, TX 77059

Tickets (and bobbleheads) will be distributed at the meeting before the game.
