The Houston Astros are a Major League baseball team located in Houston Texas, playing in the National League’s Central Division. Established in 1962, the Houston franchise nicknamed the “Houston Colt .45s” began playing at the Colt Stadium, led by Craig Cullinan, Roy Hofheinz and George Kirskey. Moving to the Astrodome, the name picked up their current name, the “Astros,” before finding a permanent home at Minute Maid Park in 2000.
With over 50 years in MLB under their belt, the Astros have seen some of baseball’s finest on their roster including the “Killer B’s,” an incredible trio of Jeff Bagwell, Craig Biggio and Derek Bell, the squad that led the Astros in their 2005 quest for a World Series win. Although they fell just short of their first World Series title that year, they have continued to grow and develop into one of the most exciting teams to watch in the MLB.
