11-04-2017 - Did You Know... The Houston Astros and NASA

 

Houston, We Have A Problem...

With its name rooted in America's space program, The Houston Astros became The 2017 World Series Champions last night against the favored Los Angeles Dodgers 5-1 in Game 7 and completing a Fall Classic for the ages.

Astros and NASA

The Astros and NASA have shared a close relationship since the team changed its name from the Colt .45s to Astros in 1965 and moved to the Astrodome. NASA and the Astros have participated together in community events and host NASA Nights each year. Past nights included first pitches by Astronaut Dan Bursch as a tribute to the International Space Station in 2002; Astronaut David Leestma in a pre-game celebration of space exploration and NASA Explorer Schools in 2004; and a tribute to the crew of Return to Flight mission, STS-114, in 2005. The Astros welcomed Apollo 13 Commander Jim Lovell on June 29, 2008 in a pre-game ceremony during the Astros and Boston Red Sox series. During the 2003 season, the Astros paid special tribute to the lost Columbia crew by wearing the STS-107 patch on their jerseys.

Congratulations to The Houston Astros on their first ever franchise World Series Win...
