The Astros are taking a page from Mack Brown and Texas. The team is asking fans to "Come early, be loud, stay late, wear orange", or something like that.

The Astros hosting their first playoff game at Minute Maid Park for the first time since 2005. As part of preparation for that event, fans are strongly encouraged to wear their Astros orange to "Orange Out" Minute Maid Park for Sunday's 3:10 p.m. game vs. the Royals.

Also noting that there will be street festival featuring Bun B. The National Anthem and God Bless America will be played by Clay Walker.

Prior to Sunday's contest, fans with a game ticket are invited to enjoy a Postseason "Hustle Town" Street Fest, featuring local food trucks, pub games, inflatables and live music from Southbound 45. Houston rapper Bun B will also make an appearance to perform the release of his new song, "Crush City". The Postseason Street Fest begins at 11 a.m. and ends at 2:30 p.m.
The Astros pregame field ceremonies will include a flag ceremony featuring 75 Astros Season Ticket Holders. Country music legend Clay Walker will perform the National Anthem, and return to the field for God Bless America during the 7th inning stretch.

The roof will be closed, time for Astros fans to rank up the volume (Bug Selig isn't here anymore to stop us).
