The navy Nike pants go along with navy New Era hats and rainbow gradient Stance socks that represent rocket thrusters that blast shuttles into space.

You can catch the 'Stros new uniforms on full display April 20 against the Los Angeles Angels.

After the first game, the team will where them for every Monday home game throughout the season. 

The team also announced there will be more to each celebrations on Monday at Minute Maid Park this season in conjunction with the jerseys.

Fans hoping to snag the new uniform can visit the Astros Team Store at Minute Maid Park, but will need a FanFest voucher to get in. Vouchers are $1 and benefit the Astros Foundation.
