Montelongo’s to host Astros 2017 World Series Trophy!June 14, 2018
Local Astros fans in the Brazos Valley have a chance to witness a piece of history as the 2017 World Series Trophy is headed to College Station, thanks to 6 Shooter Marketing and Montelongo’s Fine Jewelry.
“I remember the feeling of watching the final out of the game and not really knowing what to do with myself,” said lifelong Astros fan and 6 Shooter Marketing CEO, Dallas Shipp. “When I heard about the Astros taking the trophy on a statewide tour, I started making calls, and Jesse (Montelongo) and I couldn’t be more excited about bringing this piece of baseball history to Aggieland.”
Fans can get the first glimpse of the trophy during their lunch break at Montelongo’s Fine Jewelry on University Drive on Monday, July 2, from 12pm-1pm. They can also join Montelongo’s Fine Jewelry at The George Hotel for a second chance to see the trophy later that evening for a special happy hour event from 6pm-8pm.
On Tuesday, July 3, Aggie baseball and Astros fans can get a rare photo opportunity with trophy at Blue Bell Park from 12pm-1pm, and catch the trophy’s final stop in Aggieland at the George Bush Presidential Library that same day from 3pm-4pm. Admission to the Bush Presidential Library will also be free beginning at 3pm as fans are able to take a photo with the trophy in the oval office exhibit at the library!
“Considering President Bush’s love for the game of baseball and passion for his home-town Astros, we are delighted to display the trophy at the Bush Library.” Dr. Robert Holzweiss, Deputy Director, George H.W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum
Montelongo’s Fine Jewelry has also secured several replica Astros World Series Rings that they will give away to fans as part of the festivities, and The George is also giving away a free one-night stay at Aggieland’s newest luxury hotel.
Fans can text ASTROS to 55498 to enter to win the replica rings, as well as the free night stay at The George. The George will also be offering drink specials and American themed food pairings for the event as well.
“Once we knew that the trophy was going to be in our store, we wanted to create a fun-filled event for the fans to come by and see a piece of baseball history in person,” Montelongo said.
Fans are encouraged to sport their Astros gear, bring fun props and have fun! All photos with the trophy are free to the public and no purchase is necessary.
