Booking Houston Astros Player Appearances
The Houston Astros is a Major League Baseball team in the National League Central division, based in Houston, Texas and playing home games at Minute Maid Park in downtown Houston. The Astros were founded in 1962, originally as the Houston Colt .45s, although they took their current name just three years later.
The Astros first winning season came in 1980, when they were headed by manager Bill Virdon and led by players like pitcher Nolan Ryan who recorded his 3,000th strike on 4th of July that year and second baseman Joe Morgan who returned to the team just for the 1980 season. 1986 was a significant year; Hal Lanier managed the team, with some of their major contributing players including pitcher Mike Scott, the NCLS MVP and Cy Young Award winner and outfielder Kevin Bass who had the best year of his career that season. From 1997 to 2001 the team won their division four out of five times. Some of their significant players included first baseman Jeff Bagwell who spent his entire 15-year career in Houston and Craig Biggio who was a member of the team from 1988 through 2007 playing catcher, outfielder and second baseman. In 2005 the team went to their first World Series and pitcher Roy Oswalt was named the NLCS MVP, while Craig Biggio also had a major impact. Today, the team is managed by Brad Mills and led by infielders Chris Johnson and Jed Lowrie and pitcher Wandy Rodriguez.
