"The Ellen Show" tweeted another clue Wednesday about their H-Town plans with the Astros.

HOUSTON — The Ellen Show. Astros. Minute Maid Park. Wednesday. Be there!

Fans all over are wondering what Ellen DeGeneres is up to with the Houston Astros. 

After a mysterious Astros tweet last week, Ellen released some new details on Monday. 

"The Ellen Show" is taping a segment before the Astros game at Minute Maid Park this Wednesday, May 22. Ellen won't be there, but her crew will and everyone who attends will have a chance of appearing on her show.

"If you're planning to go to an Astros game this week, I hear it's gonna be a good one on Wednesday. #AstrosOnEllen," Ellen tweeted.

If you want to participate, you'll need a ticket to the game against the White Sox at 7:10 p.m. 

You have to be at the Plaza on Crawford Street (between left field and center field) where the entrance for segment taping will open at 3 p.m. It will remain open until 3:45 p.m. unless they reach capacity before then.

Here's what else you need to know, according to MLB.com:

• Approximate time commitment is 2 hours

• Water and limited snacks will be available for purchase
• Segment is completely outdoors, prepare accordingly for weather
• The Plaza, where filming will take place, is completely non-smoking. No smoking will be permitted. 

Ellen first tweeted about the Astros last Thursday, getting a slow clap from  Astros pitcher Justin Verlander,

A hello from Texans superstar JJ Watt ...

... And a funny retweet from Bobby Dynamite, who runs the Astros home run train.

"Um ... I guess you could say I'm a fan. I mean, most teams have bandwagons, but we have a train. I have the keys," he tweeted.

The retweet of a 17-year-old artist named Debbie in  Lagos, Nigeria included an amazing drawing of Ellen. 

And an Astros fan in Australia retweeted with a picture of her cat named ... you guessed it: Astro!
