If you’re a baseball fan in Katy, there’s no doubt that you’re a fan of the Houston Astros. The Astros are a part of Major League Baseball, and they proudly represent the city of Houston and its surrounding areas.
In 1962, The team actually was founded as the Houston Colt .45s, but they quickly changed their name 3 years later in honor of Houston’s Johnson Space Center, as well as the city’s consistent involvement in astronomy and space travel. The Astros fame reached a higher level once they moved into their new stadium, the Astrodome. Affectionally referred to as the “eighth wonder of the world”, the Astrodome was the first domed sports stadium to ever be built. Its development was assisted by Roy Hofheinz, who was the mayor of Houston at the time. From 1965 to 1999, the Astros played their home games here.
Though the Astrodome was partially named after Houston’s baseball team, it had a few other uses, too. The Houston Oilers (Houston’s NFL team at the time) used this domed stadium for homes between the years of 1968 and 1996. In addition to this, The Houston Rockets used the stadium to play some of their home games during 1971-1975. In addition to local sports team using the Astrodome to host their events, The Houston Livestock & Rodeo events were primarily held here between the years of 1996 and 2002.
The Astros struggled to put together a formidable team for many years. Their first time making the playoffs was in 1980, and though they made the World Series in 2005, they were beaten by the Chicago White Sox in 4 games. However, 12 years later, they became the 2017 World Series Champions by beating the Los Angeles Dodgers in seven games.
