<p>Boston Astros players, coaches, alumni and friends gathered on Sunday evening to watch the Red Sox beat the Cardinals in Game 4 of the World Series.  The private event drew more than 100 people – including most of the Astros’ Triple Crown Sports US Baseball Championship team, and Astros alumni who have gone on to play professional baseball including Juan Carlos Portes, formerly of the Minnesota Twins, Eddy Morabel, who recently signed as a free agent with the Texas Rangers, and Vladimir Camacho, recently drafted into the Frontier League. Also in attendance: Robert Lewis, Jr., founder and president of The BASE and the Boston Astros; WCVB’s CityLine Host Karen Holmes Ward and her husband, Forrest Ward, Mark Culliton, Executive Director of College Bound Dorchester, Chris Byner of Boston Centers for Youth and Families, Denise Korn of Korn Design and Youth Design, and Scott Tully, Novaya Real Estate Ventures. Boston Astros team is comprised of elite players, primarily from Dorchester, Roxbury and Mattapan. Each player ‘earns their spot,’ and there is no fee to participate on the team, contrary to most elite suburban teams. The Astros earned several impressive championships this season, and more importantly, are celebrating success off the field with 16 of 17 graduating seniors going on to college.  </p>
