The Astros opened up the second half of the season with a 10-5 win over the Twins at Minute Maid Park, and for their pregame festivities they invited the Rockets' newest star, point guard Chris Paul. 

CP3, acquired by the Rockets last week in a big trade with the Clippers, took the mound in a personalized Astros jersey with his kids, who were also wearing their own special jerseys for the occasion. 

During his visit, Paul also posed for photos with Dallas Kuechel and Jose Altuve, of course. 

As for his ceremonial first pitch, you can watch it in the video atop this post. It should be no surprise to anybody familiar with CP3's skills that he had no issues hitting his target.
