Jeremy Peña has quickly become the heart throb of Houston. And while other players might take off to the likes of Disneyland after winning the World Series, Peña is giving back to the people. This Monday at noon, the Houston Astros hero will be working the window at Raising Canes at the 7009 Gulf Freeway location, according to ABC Houston.
Just prior to the World Series final, Jeremy Peña made history by becoming the first rookie to win the Gold Glove award. Peña also became the first rookie in World Series history to get a hit in the first 6 games.
On Monday at noon the shortstop will be tossing chicken fingers, Texas Toast, and Cane’s Sauce at the Raising Cane’s location off of I-45 and the 610 South Loop in celebration of the Astros’ second franchise World Series win.
Be apprised, we all saw the videos of Houstonians lining up at Academy to meet Jose Altuve, so expect Major League waits.
Today marks the one-week anniversary of the Astros’ World Series win. In the meantime, the City of Houston flooded the streets in celebration with a massive parade. Additionally, local restaurants and franchises honored the victory by giving out freebies to adoring fans.
