Houston Astros to celebrate Apollo 11 with moon lander bobblehead

An astronaut will take to the field as a baseball player walks on the moon — at least, the latter in bobblehead format — as part of NASA Night with the Houston Astros (opens in new tab).

Fans attending Saturday’s (July 16) baseball game at Minute Maid Park will be treated to a celebration of the 53rd anniversary of the launch of the Apollo 11 first lunar landing mission. Anne McClain, who spent more than 200 days aboard the International Space Station in 2019, will throw out out the ceremonial first pitch, while a toy version of the Astros’ second baseman, Jose Altuve, will be available to attendees as a souvenir of the space-themed event.
