The Houston Astros completed the sweep against the Colorado Rockies last weekend in the two-game Major League series that took place in Mexico City where one of the main stars of the sidereal ninth, Jose Altuvewas delighted with the atmosphere that was experienced at the Alfredo Harp Helú stadium.

The Astros’ Venezuelan second baseman was so satisfied that he even assured that he is not closed to the possibility that at some point in his successful career he could play with the Red Devils in Mexican baseball. Of course, after finishing his current five-year contract with the sidereal team.

“Yes, why not? (I would play in Mexico). I have years left in the Major Leagues, but I would love to. “They have an incredible fan base and nothing is ruled out.”commented Jose Altuve during the press conference after the game that Houston’s team won against Colorado on Sunday with a score of 8 runs to 2.

The two-time winner of the American League MVP award had the opportunity to spend time with the Red Devils management during his stay on Aztec soil. The capital team currently has a couple of players who shone in the Major Leagues such as the Dominican Robinson Canó and Trevor Bauer.

José Altuve, considered one of the best hitters in the entire Major Leagues in recent seasons. He also pointed out how much he liked the Mexican capital, so in the not too distant future he would like to be able to repeat the experience of playing a Major League game in Mexico City or simply be able to visit the country.

“We appreciate the support of the Mexican fans. We don’t want to leave, we had a great time here because it is a very beautiful city. I just hope to return one day. Many things that I liked, starting with the two victories, and that we got to know the city, we walked and then arrived and won. “I would like to come to Mexico, next year or the next”declared the Venezuelan.

José Altuve has been one of the most productive players for the Houston Astros in this season, which has not been the best for the team.

“What I can say is that coming to Mexico, the fans gave us immense support and we felt at home. Baseball has been growing more and more in the country. Whether it’s next year or the next, I put myself first on the list to return and have these types of encounters,” concluded the Venezuelan second baseman.

The Houston Astros are not having the expected performance at the beginning of the season and without counting this Monday’s day in the Major Leagues, the sidereal team has a record of 9-19, occupying the last place in the Western Division of the American League.
