June 10th the Astros Double A affiliate the Corpus Christi Hooks will take on the San Diego Padres Double A affiliate the San Antonio Missions at Minute Maid Park. Last year the Hooks lost in the playoffs to the Missions who would go on to become the eventually Texas League Champions. The game in Houston will feature some of the top prospects in the Astros pipeline. Last season both George Springer and Jonathan Singleton spent time with the Hooks before making the jump to Triple A (Oklahoma City RedHawks).
“The Astros Futures Game gives the fans in Houston the chance to see some of our young prospects, and gives our players the experience of playing in a Major League ballpark” Astros GM Jeff Luhnow said. Astros fans should enjoy a chance to see the stars of tomorrow, today (June 10th).
