Houston, we have a ballgame


Today is the day I get to use one of my favorite logos of all. Ain't it a beauty? This was the face of the Astros' franchise from 1975-93, and it's one of the best from what I consider to be the golden age of baseball unis.
Well, the Astros are in Bradenton today to face the Pirates, donning their ho-hum, modern day practice jerseys.
This is John Lembo, detailing the action from McKechnie Field's next-to-last game of the spring.
(Notice I said SPRING and not YEAR. Why? The Marauders are coming...)
Here are the people starting today's game:
