Cowboys-Texans game moved to AT&T Stadium due to Hurricane Harvey

Expert: Harvey weakened fast, but destruction just beginning

The Astros-Rangers series, scheduled to begin Tuesday in Houston, was moved to Tampa's Tropicana Field, which was announced by Major League Baseball late Monday afternoon.

The adjustment is necessary after the recent devastation from Hurricane Harvey, which has led to flooding throughout the Houston area. After the series with the Rangers, the Astros will stay in the Tampa area and play the New York Mets.

The Houston Texans are now facing a situation in which they are stranded outside of Houston after playing an National Football League game on Saturday against the New Orleans Saints. They did-and it's the Tampa Bay Rays' ballpark in St. Petersburg, Florida, which doesn't make the Rangers look too good.

The Astros own the 2nd-best record in all of baseball and they now rank 2nd in numberFire's MLB Team Power Rankings for the season.

Both the Rangers and Astros flew into Dallas following their games on Sunday in California to wait for the news of where their three-game series that starts on Tuesday would be played. "It's very hard. It's very hard not only because we have family and friends back there, some guys have young kids, some guys have wives and families".

The Rangers said Monday they will donate proceeds from the Texas 2 Split 50/50 Raffle at this weekend's home series against the Angels to the American Red Cross, to specifically benefit those affected by Hurricane Harvey in South Texas.

Studies and advocates place the number of trans people now serving in the armed forces between 1,300 and 11,000. They argue that ban violates the equal protection, due process and free speech guarantees of the Constitution.

The Texans also pledged $1 million to the flood relief efforts. "There is an emptiness in the thought we would play in Houston". This is not going to be solved by one win, this is not going to be solved overnight and we want our people to be safe.

Astros pitcher Lance McCullers harshly criticized the Rangers on Monday after Astros president Reid Ryan revealed that Texas was less than accommodating in rescheduling this week's series in Houston.

"Our schedule, our flight times, where we're going to be, the buses - all that stuff is meaningless compared to what everybody is suffering through". The rabbi at the synagogue's OU counterpart in Houston told Scheiner that his building is under 6 feet of water after the downpour. I was just trying to spread the word.

These two teams were suppoed to play their first game of the season at NRG Stadium, the home of the Texans.

"While we would love to be coming home today, our first responsibility is the safety of these players", coach David Bailiff said. "We also hope our actions encourage others to do what they can to help their neighbors in need right now".
