James Harden is front and center at a big Houston sporting event, but it isn’t being played at the Toyota Center.
The Houston Astros are currently hosting the Boston Red Sox in the second game of their ALDS series.
The Astros lead the game 4-1, and fans who tune in to FOX Sports 1 can spot Harden just to the left of home plate. The beard makes him pretty hard to miss.
He has a great view of Dallas Keuchel, who is dealing with six strikeouts in just four innings thus far.

After signing a massive contract extension in July, Harden declared that he will be in Houston “forever.” He’s certainly making himself a central part of the city’s sports landscape today, weeks before his Rockets begin the 2017-18 season.
