Astros-Phillies World Series game times revealed
Major League Baseball has set a 7:03 p.m. CT first pitch for all seven scheduled games of the 2022 World Series between the Astros and the Phillies.

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- If ticket affordability or availability has kept you from seeing the Astros play at home in the World Series, the club has a just as worthy alternative to get rowdy inside Minute Maid Park on gamedays.

The Houston Astros' homefield advantage means the team will have to travel to Philadelphia for at least two games of the world championship series.

Like in previous World Series runs, the 'Stros are opening the Juice Box to fans while the team is away for Games 3, 4, and potentially 5.

Fans can start claiming their vouchers at $1 each through the Astros' website. All proceeds benefit the Astros Foundation.

Each Astros road game has a 7:03 p.m. CT first pitch, with gates opening at 5 p.m. each day. Aside from the game, festivities around the ballpark include live music, caricature artists, face painters, games, food trucks, and more. The showcase event is the game being shown on the ballpark's videoboard, which is the fifth-largest in the majors.
