American rapper Travis Scott, who grew up in  Missouri City, has been a big fan of Houston sports and the 32-year-old has recently stuck a naming rights deal with the Houston Astros and Washington Nationals to rename their spring training ballpark in West Palm Beach, South Florida. The rapper appeared at the ribbon-cutting ceremony and threw out the ceremonial first pitch at Cacti Park.

The 10-time Grammy nominee's 'Cacti Hard Seltzer' brand bought the naming rights of the spring training ballpark, shared by the Houston Astros and Washington Nationals in West Palm Beach, South Florida. Ahead of the Astros and Nationals Spring Training game, Scott cut the ribbon of the Cacti Park, which was formerly called the Ballpark of the Palm Beaches.

In a viral video on social media, Scott can be seen cutting the ribbon and throwing the ceremonial first pitch at the Cacti Park. After throwing the pitch, which hit the left-handed batter's box, Scott said, "He swung! He's outta there! Let's play ball people!"

Notably, Scott held the 2024 Cactus Jack Foundation HBCU Celebrity Softball Classic on February 15, which saw several celebrities attending and being part of the game. According to the MLB, proceeds from the event went directly to the Waymon Webster Scholarship Fund, Travis Scott’s Cactus Jack Foundation, and Project H.E.A.L initiative.

The game saw star-studded lineups including the Cactus Jack himself alongside CJ Stroud, Damar Hamlin, Amber Rose, and Reggie Jackson among others. The second Annual Celebrity Game hosted by Travis ended in a tie, with Houston Texans quarterback CJ Stroud named MVP.
