Astros get booed at home in spring training opener

Houston Astros logo

The Houston Astros are going to get booed a lot this season. It turns out they’ll be getting used to it from the start of spring training.

The Astros opened their spring campaign at home to the Washington Nationals, but plenty of Nats fans made the trip. The Astros were loudly booed during introductions, despite the fact that none of the players they started Saturday were part of the 2017 team that cheated.

Various beat writers described the very awkward scene.

It’s not really fair that a bunch of kids who had nothing to do with the scandal have to take the heat in this game, but that’s what the Astros have elected to do. It’s fair to expect that the booing will only get louder once the Astros start playing their regulars during spring, especially on the road. Those boos probably won’t be the only consequences those players face, either.

The Houston Astros are confirmed cheaters and deserve an asterisk. Send that message by wearing our Houston Asterisks T-shirt! You can buy it here:
