Overview
"Houston Astros: Deep in the Heart" shares the stories of the plays and the players who have kept Houston returning to the diamond--from the sandlot days, through the birth of indoor baseball, to the state-of-the art experience at Minute Maid Park. By the time the Astros made it to the World Series, they had captured the heart of Houston. This richly illustrated volume chronicles every aspect of the long road they took to face the White Sox in 2005 and provides insights on the legends--Bob Aspromonte, Jose Cruz, Larry Dierker, Nolan Ryan, Joe Niekro, the Killer Bees, and many more. Packed with pictures never released to the public, each chapter increases fans' appreciation of this determined team. Memories and memorabilia from the team's playoff appearances from 1997 to 2001, their close call in 2004, and their triumphant march from tombstones to champagne in 2005 bring back the heyday, reminding readers how important it is to stay in the game.
