Before They Were Houston Astros They Were Corpus Christi Hooks
Here is a fun article to revisit. It's a look at some of your favorite Astros Baseball Players before they were superstars with their time with the Astros double-A affiliate Corpus Christi Hooks. Have you ever been to Whataburger Field in Corpus Christi? This is why I go to minor league baseball games. You never know what future superstars are taking the field. Thanks for the CC Hooks Facebook page for posting these awesome photos!
Check out the babyfaces of Correa, Altuve, Bregman, Valdez, Tucker, and McCuller's Jr.
YORDAN ALVAREZ DOMINATED THE ALCS
ELITE PITCHING DURING THE ALCS:
After the Houston Astros struggled with pitching during games 3 and 4. The Houston Astros pitching staff has really buttoned things up. The turning point in the series was game 5. Framber Valdez gave us the best start in the postseason thus far and almost went the distance going 8 innings allowing only 3 hits and striking out 5 against a hot Red Sox offense, at the time.
The Astros eventually fell to the Braves in the World Series.
I can't wait for the 2022 season of Houston Astros baseball.
