How an Astros player helped high-school kids have a cool World Series celebration

This is the story of a Houston Astros superfan who lives in Texas Rangers country, who teaches high school history and who promised his classes a pizza party if the Astros won the World Series — even though many of them weren’t Astros fans. But he was and he thought this was the year.

And it’s the story of one Astros player who saw a tweet about the pizza party, then answered with a few swipes on his phone and a little bit of money from his bank account to give those kids another party, because as he says, high school is “always better when you have a little extra fun.”

Is Thickie Don the primate Thickie Don???

Cute little human interest story. Nice of Tyler White to respond. Guess he wanted to stay relevant even though he was left off the ALCS and World Series roster.
