The Houston Astros get back to regular season baseball Thursday, but local fans won’t be able to cheer them on at Minute Maid Park.
The team’s first game of the season is in Arlington against the Texas Rangers.
But you don’t have to travel to catch the action.
Several places across the Houston area are hosting watch parties, so you don’t have to miss a minute of opening day.
The game starts at 2:35 p.m.
