The 2017 World Series Champion Houston Astros have been powered by the relentless, persistent, and awe-inspiring people of Houston, who have continually showed the world how great their city is and that they would not be vanquished by the destruction of Hurricane Harvey. The city came together in the aftermath of this disaster, and rose to the occasion, facing it head on, standing united, with the people, its businesses, and its organizations choosing to stand together, strong, to rebuild the city we all love, showing the world who Houstonians are and what we're made of.
The Houston Astros have now won their first World Series championship. The country rooted for them. We rooted for them. And most importantly, the city of Houston rooted for them. Houston Strong became more than a motto or anthem, but a mindset and part of the permanent identity of the 2017 Astros.
After Harvey struck, the Astros introduced a logo to be worn as a patch near their hearts for the remainder of the season, that has served as a constant reminder as to who they're playing for and the city that loves them. A patch that means more than any other they've ever worn.
A patch that simply, but powerfully, reads "Houston Strong."
We propose that the Houston Astros permanently add the Houston Strong logo to Minute Maid Park beginning in the 2018 season, as not just a reminder of their remarkable 2017 run that ended in Championship glory, but also as a reminder to the city of Houston to a time when not just the team, not just the city, but the nation and the world came together to support the city we all love and esteem so much, near and far.
In signing this petition, we state that we would like to see the logo placed on one of the pillars at Minute Maid park visible to all guests, for all events, as a permanent reminder of who we are, no matter where we may be now, and what we all are:
