The Houston Astros announced that the Astros Championship Trophy Tour presented by Mattress Firm will kick off on Monday, Jan. 8.

Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner, Astros President of Business Operations Reid Ryan and Mattress Firm President and CEO Ken Murphy will be on-hand to celebrate the launch of the tour.
The Astros Championship Trophy Tour gives fans the chance to relive the magic of the Astros 2017 World Series run with the Commissioner's Trophy as it makes over 100 stops throughout Texas and surrounding areas.

The Astros Championship Trophy Tour will make its first major public stop at Mattress Firm Meyerland on Monday, Jan. 8 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. at its 8705 S. West Loop location in Houston. This marks one of the first major opportunities fans will have to visit and take photos with the Commissioner's Trophy.
