Before They Were Houston Astros They Were Corpus Christi Hooks
As we get ready for game one of the World Series, I am seeing all kinds of cool stuff pop up on my feed. This one caught my eye. 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
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. He is your Game 1 World Series starter.
