Sugar Land Skeeters second baseman Alvaro Rondon signs an autograph for a young fan Wednesday at Constellation Field. 

HOUSTON — The Houston Astros acquisition of the Sugar Land Skeeters franchise was officially approved by the Sugar Land City Council on Tuesday.

As part of the agreement, the Astros and the City of Sugar Land partnered on a lease extension, keeping the Skeeters at Constellation Field through at least the 2045 season.

The Astros now have majority ownership of the Sugar Land Skeeters, which will serve as the club¹s Triple A affiliate beginning this season.

Sugar Land joins the organization after spending the last nine years in the Independent Atlantic League (2012-20), which included two league titles for the Skeeters (2016, 2018).
