After another unforgettable day making Warrior Wishes come true at Globe Life Stadium in Arlington, my dad headed south to host warriors at the Astros game!
Thanks to our good friends at Globe Life, my dad actually got a good nights sleep in a hotel! A little too good, because he almost missed his 10:45 bus ride…
He arrived in Houston at around 3pm and immediately made his way to Minute Maid Park to pick up tickets and set up dinner for the warriors.
He had planned on having dinner at the Restaurant in Westin Hotel down the street, however, but both of the warriors could not get there til 5:00, for a 6:10 game. So instead he set up a quick bite to eat at Home Plate Bar & Grill located directly across the street from ballpark.
Today we had the honor of hosting 2 Marines at the Astros game. Sgt Luis Morales and LCpl Casey Buentello
Sgt Morales and LCpl Buentello actually knew each other and had attended other similar events, even though they were nominated separately. My dad enjoyed getting to know them a little bit over a quick burger & some nachos, before walking across street to Minute Maid Park.
Before heading inside, he presented each of them with brand new New Era Astros caps and they posed for a couple pictures in front of the stadium.
The warriors enjoyed watching Texans Defensive end, JJ Watt, throw out the first pitch & got to see a pitchers duel between the A’s & Astros. All 3 runs scored in the game were solo home runs. Unfortunately the A’s hit 2 & the Astros only had 1…
Despite the loss, the guys had a great time. We want to thank Home Plate Bar & Grill for providing a quick meal before the game & New Era Cap Company for providing the warriors with new Astros Caps!
TOGETHER WE MAKE WARRIOR WISHES COME TRUE!
My dad will be spending the night in Houston, before making his way back to the Astros game tomorrow to make more Warrior Wishes come true! Stay tuned for more details!
