HOUSTON -- The Astros will honor All-Star subsequent baseman Jose Altuve for breaking the Brandon Saad Jersey club's single-season attack record during a pregame ceremony tonite at Minute Maid Park your car. Craig Biggio, whose record Altuve smashed, will take part.

Altuve surpassed Biggio by getting his 211th hit of the season against the Indians, breaking Biggio's record associated with 210, set in 1998.

In recognition of the milestone, Biggio and Minute House maid representative Fred Arnold will present Altuve with 211 bottles of http://www.asmonacoplayershop.com/shop_by_player/Thomas-Lemar-Jersey-2016-17-AS-Monaco-Kits-Sale-Online House maid orange juice. The wedding service will also include a video demonstrating all 211 of Altuve's hits.

As the main promotion, 211 envelopes will be due to ballpark ushers to aimlessly selected fans. Each mailer will contain gifts from the Astros along with Minute Maid. Fans whom http://www.mlbplayershop.com/MLB_TEAM/Baltimore_Orioles receive an envelope will be expected to keep it sealed until instructed to open it during the ceremony.

In add-on, the Astros are offering a '211 Hits' citation package that includes a commemorative T-shirt; to find out more, visit Astros.com/Altuve.

On http://www.mlbplayershop.com/MLB_TEAM/Atlanta_Braves, center fielder Dexter Fowler gave Altuve a $1,700 bottle regarding John Walker & Sons Odyssey blended malt Scotch whisky as a gift to celebrate the accomplishment.

'As among the veterans, I felt I have to give him something,' Fowler explained. 'He's a very humble guy, and i am very happy for him to view him do that and be hitting behind and in front regarding him, and being able to watch them is a treat.'

HOUSTON -- Representatives from the Astros and the Nationals will present a proposed mutual Spring Training complex inside West Palm Beach, Fla., to the Side Beach County Tourism Growth Council on Sept. 13 and Palm Beach County Commissioners on Sept. 23.

The Astros happen to be trying for more than http://www.mlbplayershop.com/MLB_TEAM/Arizona_Diamondbacks a year to obtain a new complex built they would share with another club, and the formal presentation is a big step. The Astros' lease in Kissimmee, expires at the end of 2016, and the Astros would like to begin construction using a new spring site by means of January.

The Palm Beach Submit reported the teams asks for $3 million a year within hotel tax money that can help for the proposed $140 million facility, which would be located at Haverhill Street and 45th Street in West Palm Beach.

In a joint statement, the Astros along with Nationals said:

'The Astros and Excellent are finalizing a joint demonstration in support of a proposed athletics complex that will enable the Major Little league Clubs to co-locate our Troy Brouwer Jersey Training facilities in Boynton beach. Our projections show that the economical impact created by the activities on the new complex will be in more than $100 million each year.

'We have a sturdy desire to make Palm Beach Region our home for Spring Teaching and help re-establish the east coast of Florida as a heart for Major League Baseball's Early spring Training activities and create a complicated for community and nationwide sporting events throughout the year.'

MIAMI -- Marlins leadoff hitter Christian Yelich turned http://www.asmonacoplayershop.com/shop_by_player/Terence-Kongolo-As-Monaco-2017-18-Kits-Kids-Women-Store-Online a lot around in the team's beyond nine games.

The 22-year-old spent the initial nine games in July batting .200 (7-for-35) with all 5 walks and 10 strikeouts. Given, four of those hits went for extra bases and Yelich owned in six runs, but he'd been struggling to set the tone at the top of the order.

All of their seemed to change when Yelich arrived at Marlins Park on Aug. 13. That night, he went 3-for-4, scored two runs thus hitting an RBI single in Miami's 6-5 conquer the Cardinals.

Yelich hasn't slowed down after that, with a hit in each http://www.asmonacoplayershop.com/shop_by_player/Valere-Germain-Jersey-2016-17-AS-Monaco-Kits-Sale-Online in the Marlins' games this homestand and a .514 cut (19-for-37) in that span. He also offers six multihit games and a .550 on-base amount.

Yelich went from batting .267 following the last road trip to playing baseball .288.

If Yelich can continue his scorching hitting from the leadoff spot when the Marlins start their nine-game road trip on Friday, it'll provide the other lineup something to build upon as Miami inches nearer in Adam Burish Jersey the National League postseason battle.

'Obviously, you just want to play well as lengthy as you can and try to help these people win,' Yelich said. 'It's crucial that you be getting on base, whether or not you're home or while travelling. ... We've played well enough to put ourselves in a position to make the past six weeks of the season matter, which can be all you can ask for right now. We haven't accomplished anything, and we understand that.'

KANSAS CITY -- With arguably the Tigers' biggest series of the first 50 % underway, ace Max Scherzer finds himself in the http://www.asmonacoplayershop.com/shop_by_player/Tiemoue-Bakayoko-Jersey-2016-17-AS-Monaco-Kits-Sale-Online position of spectator.

Because Scherzer started the particular series finale with the Dodgers, the particular Royals have the good fortune connected with not having to face him over the four-game series, the final series before the All-Star break.

Scherzer, an All-Star for the minute straight year, will check out as Detroit looks to build with its 4 1/2-game lead around Kansas City entering Thursday.

'Oh, it's great. You get a little breather prior to http://www.asmonacoplayershop.com/shop_by_player/Youri-Tielemans-As-Monaco-2017-18-Kits-Kids-Women-Store-Online the All-Star break,' Scherzer said, including, 'It's welcomed. Not going to complain about getting a break.'

Scherzer stated that for the most part, his normal pregame prep would not differ.

'I'm in the position quo. I'm doing my system the way it always is. I'm coming to the park, finding my work in, lifting, running, doing everything I need to do today to prepare like http://www.asmonacoplayershop.com/shop_by_player/Soualiho-Meite-As-Monaco-2017-18-Kits-Kids-Women-Store-Online I was planning to pitch in five days,' Scherzer mentioned. 'The only thing that really could change is the throwing factor.'

Whether Scherzer pitches in the Midsummer Classic, along with how long, combined with the fact that the particular Tigers play a doubleheader about the Saturday after the break reduces matters for manager Kaira Ausmus when it comes to setting his post-All-Star Game rotation.

But before Thursday's game, Ausmus indicated that Scherzer would pitch in one of the first couple of days following the http://www.mlbplayershop.com/MLB_TEAM/Boston_Red_Sox.
