Houston Astros fans and supporters of affable TV host Ellen DeGeneres can score a double play on Wednesday, May 22. After a cryptic tweet on Monday, May 20, The Ellen DeGeneres Show has announced that it will set up shop at Minute Maid Park for a special segment recording on game day, when the Astros take on the Chicago White Sox.
Fans who want to participate should (presumably) be ready to dance, have a ticket to the game, and be prepared for at least a two-hour time commitment. Access to the segment runs from 3-3:45 pm, while space permits.
The segment recording will be completely outdoors, so guests should plan accordingly and be prepared to observe ballpark security guidelines. Fans will not be permitted to leave the plaza space until the segment is complete (water and snacks will be available for purchase).
Attendees should head to the Plaza on Crawford Street (between Left Field Gate and Center Field Gate). A specific entrance dedicated to taping segment will be near Center Field Gate; guests should watch for queue lines and Ellen entrance signage.
Never one to see her fans leave empty-handed, Ellen will ensure that all participants will receive a Yuli Gurriel 'Swing' Bobblehead, which will be distributed once taping is complete.
