Astros fans enjoy watch party despite loss

Posted at 11:41 PM, Oct 29, 2019

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Astros fans who came out to Whataburger Field for a World Series Game 6 watch party enjoyed the party, but weren't happy with the 7-2 loss to the Washington Nationals.

The best-of-seven-game series is tied at 3-3.

"We're sad," party-goer Christine Duda said. "We're so bummed."

Duda wasn't the only one.

"Disappointed," fellow party-goer Dan Gillis said. "Really looking forward to tomorrow. I believe the Astros can bring it home."

Though he'll have to wait another night for the series to end, Gillis still enjoyed the experience.

"The event was awesome," Gillis continued. "Just to be able to go on the field."

The actual playing surface of Whataburger Field is where many of the watch party-goers spent their evening on blankets or just on the soft grass.

"I want to be out here," Andrea Trejo said, explaining her family's decision to come to the watch party. "At home it's boring."

Other fans stuck to the stadium's seats.

Roger Garcia, a Texas Rangers fan, chose the back row of the seats behind home plate.

"I think they're the best seats to watch the Astros from," Garcia said. "(The Rangers) are my team, yes. But today I'm rooting for the Astros."

Admission to the watch party was free, as was parking. Food and beverages were available for purchase. Stadium managers indicated there would be another watch party Wednesday night for the deciding Game 7 against the Nationals, but those details haven't been released yet.
