Joining the MLB in 1962 as an expansion franchise, the Astros are relative newcomers to the big league. The team has had to make up for its late start with some impressive performances over the years. The franchise started out as the Houston Colt.45s. However, after three years in the league, the name was changed to the current one. One major reason for the new name was that it coincided with the franchise’s shifting to their new home, the Astrodome.
Pride of ‘Space City’
The Houston Astros have been named as a tribute to the city’s relationship with the NASA Space program. The Astros are placed in the American League where they play in the Western Division. The franchise plays its home games at the Minute Maid Park which has been its home ground since 2000.
In terms of leagues, the Astros have been constantly on the move. For the first half century of their history, the team was placed in the National League. However, in 2013 they were relocated to the American League. Similarly, for a brief period from 1994 to 2012 the Astros were placed in the Central division before being placed back in the Western division. All these changes have made the team into one of the most adaptive and resilient teams in the league. With six league titles under their belt, this is one franchise that is on the verge of a breakout season.
