Astros Visit Urban Youth Academy Saturday May 10, 2008

Astros manager Cecil Cooper and his entire coaching staff took time out of a busy game day to visit the MLB Urban Youth Academy in Compton, Calif. Cooper and his staff were given a personal tour by Academy instructor Ken Landreaux, who played against Cooper in the 1970’s when both were in the American League.

This was the first time that Cooper had seen the two-year-old facility and was very impressed. Cooper and his staff took the time to chat with many of the young academy students.

Cooper says he will make it a point to come back to the academy when the Astros are in the Los Angeles area to play either the Dodgers or Angels. (we at the Academy would like to send a big “thank you” to Mr. Ben Platt, from MLB.COM for the pictures and the story)
