ROUND ROCK, Texas -- The caravan is back in Round Rock, although this year it has a very different look.

Houston Astros players and front office personnel visited Central Texas on Tuesday to meet and greet fans ahead of the season.

The Round Rock Express is the Astros AAA affiliate after parting ways with the Texas Rangers during the offseason. 

“We think it is going to be good for the Astros brand, good for the express brand and really it is going to be a lot of good baseball. We have a lot of talent in the system and over the next couple of years people are going to see some really good baseball players,” Astros President of Business Operation Reid Ryan said.
