HOUSTON – It's a big week for Houston sports fans as we look to the future of the Houston Texans while celebrating a past hero for the Houston Astros.
KPRC Channel 2 has it all covered in Houston, at the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York, and at Houston Texans Training Camp in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia.
"Training Camp 2017" broadcasted live at 7 p.m. from West Virginia where the team will be wrapping up its first week.
Channel 2 sports director Randy McIlvoy reported the big story lines from the first days of camp, including JJ Watt's return and Deshaun Watson's debut. Plus, anchor Keith Garvin looked at the small community that's opened its doors for our team as they prepare for the new season.
"Jeff Bagwell: Houston to the Hall" aired at 7:30 p.m.
From his high school days as a soccer star to the lucky trade that brought him to the Bayou City, we look back at Bagwell's journey to becoming an Astro and what it took for him to become the team's second player to be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. KPRC2 sports anchor/reporter Adam Wexler was in Cooperstown providing live coverage for the special.
