HOUSTON — Fans are fired up to see the Astros play in their home opener Thursday.
For the first time since 2019, Astros fans will be in the stands.
It's still hard to believe that no one saw the team play in person last season due to the coronavirus pandemic. Besides cheering on the 'Stros, one of the best parts of going to a home game was walking away with some exclusive Astros swag.

Last year, the team planned to give away 2019 ALCS trophies as well as Justin Verlander Cy Young bobbleheads and Jose Altuve ALCS MVP bobbleheads.
But since no one was in the stands, the team had to keep all of these giveaways in storage.
But don't fret, you can still get your hands on some of the 2020 'Stros merchandise and all you have to do is attend a home game.
There will be 47 giveaways this season, which is higher than normal. These giveaways will be given at the gate for ticketed fans only and merchandise is limited.
