Houston Astros shortstop Jeremy Peña, who was named World Series MVP, will continue his celebration in the coming days and weeks. That will include a stop at Raising Cane’s in southeast Houston on Monday.

But Peña won’t just be there to chow down — he’ll actually be working the drive-thru window. His shift begins at noon.

Peña’s appearance at Raising Cane’s is just the latest in a series made by Astros players. Jose Altuve, Alex Bregman and Kyle Tucker all made stops at Academy Sports + Outdoors stores throughout the Houston area this week, while Yordan Alvarez and Cristian Javier appeared at different DICK’s Sporting Goods stores.

Fans camped out at all five locations and a similar frenzy is expected at Raising Cane’s.

Peña hit .400/.423/.600 with one home run and three RBI during the Astros’ 4-2 series win over the Philadelphia Phillies. He is the first rookie hitter to be named World Series MVP in MLB history. The 25-year-old also won ALCS MVP honors.
