CORPUS  CHRISTI - Houston Astros Day in the Sparkling City by the Sea was  proclaimed by Mayor Joe McComb at the beginning of Tuesday's weekly city  council meeting.

McComb,  joined by council members Rudy Garza (District 5), Paulette Guajardo  (at-large), Michael Hunter (at-large), Debbie Lindsey-Opel (at-large),  Ben Molina (District 2), Lucy Rubio (District 3), Greg Smith (District  4), and Carolyn Vaughn (District 1), welcomed Hooks president Ken Schrom  and 20 other front-office members to the proceedings.

"It was so gracious of the mayor and city  council to acknowledge and underscore the impact of the Astros' first  world title and the decades-long connection between fans in Corpus  Christi, the Coastal Bend, and the Astros," Schrom said. "The  relationship between the Astros and Corpus Christi is stronger than  ever. Our fans have had the opportunity to cheer for and follow  prominent young players as they rose through the Houston player  development system … exceptional talents like Jose Altuve, Alex Bregman, Carlos Correa, George Springer, Dallas Keuchel… the list goes on and on."

The Astros, who have a Whataburger Field  lease agreement with the city through 2034, captured their first world  championship last Wednesday in Los Angeles against the Dodgers. Read the proclamation here.
