The Houston Astros showed quite a lot of promise last season and that gave everyone associated with them a lift. Now that they are about to make their way to the Rogers Centre, hopes are high that the Astros will come out on top against the Blue Jays.
The formation of the Houston Astros in 1962 was a pivotal moment in the city’s sporting history. For well over a hundred years before that, from 1888 till 1961, the Houston Buffaloes were the only baseball side in the city and even that was a minor league team. The officials from the city had been trying for years to get a major league team to represent the city and their hard work paid off in 1962 when the MLB decided to give Houston its own baseball franchise.
The Astros play
The new franchise was known as the Houston Colt.45s and the name changed to the Astros after 1964. They won their first major title in 1980 in the form of division championship. They won another division crown six years later. After a bit of a lean patch, the Astros won three successive division championships in 1997, 1998 and 1999. They clinched their sixth division title in 2001 before going to lift the NL Pennant in 2005.
Will they be able to reach those heights again? Book your Houston Astros Toronto tickets and watch them take on the Blue Jays in a series that might show if they are good enough to make an impact this season.
