History of The Stars
The Astros were established in 1962, when they were known as the Houston Colt .45s. A few years later, the Colt .45s changed their name to the Astros, to show support for Houston's involvement with the US space program. The Astros were part of one of the biggest blockbuster trades in MLB history, unfortunately getting the worse end of the deal. In 1971, the Astros traded Joe Morgan, Denis Menke, Jack Billingham, Cesar Geronimo and Ed Armbrister to the Cincinatti Reds for Lee May, Tommy Helms, and Jimmy Stewart. Fans believed Gerenal Manager Spec Richardson had something up his sleeve, but results weren't great for quite some time. Originally members of the National League, the Astros moved to the American League in 2013. Prior to 2017 the Astros have only been to one World Series but lost to the Chicago White Sox. After losing to the White Sox, the Astros fell on tough times, but loyal fans knew all along that the Astros would establish themselves as a power once again! Their time came in 2017 when they shocked many with their World Series Championship.
Minute Maid Park
Minute Maid Park has been the home field of the Astros since 2000. The stadium was a replacement for the Astrodome, which was built in 1965. Minute Maid Park is well known for being a hitter-friendly stadium, contrary to the Astrodome, which was known to be the most pitching-friendly stadium in the MLB. Good luck hitting a ball out in center field, because the deep center wall is a wopping 436 feet! Outfielders on away teams fear the 90 foot-wide incline in center field known as Tal's Hill.
