The MacArthur Generals baseball team played Texas City High School at Minute Maid Park on Saturday, April 13.
The game, which was free to the public, was made possible through the Houston Astros’ High School Baseball Program. MacArthur High was invited to participate in the campaign to help raise a minimum of $3,500 for the baseball program at the campus. The team also received a memorabilia item signed by a Houston Astros player and a VIP Astros Experience for four (includes four complimentary dugout tickets with the ability to view bullpen from the field).
To earn a chance to play at Minute Maid Park, the program required the MacArthur Generals to commit to selling 500 ticket vouchers at the special rate of $27. Each voucher is redeemable for one (1) bullpen box ticket at a Houston Astros game in April or May 2013, excluding games on April 2 and May 10-12.
The non-district game at Minute Maid Park was a chance for the young athletes to experience playing on a professional field. And for the Generals, the game proved a highlight of the year. MacArthur beat Texas City 5 to 4.
Coach Ernest Gonzales and the baseball players thank everyone for their support as well as for giving the team the chance to play at Minute Maid Park.
“Playing at Minute Maid Park was very exciting for the players and MacArthur fans,” commented Gonzales. “Everyone had fun and had a great time. No one wanted to leave.”
