Astro Legends is designed with the fan in mind, giving them an inside look into their favorite sports team franchise. The book focuses on the team and history, breaking down the barrier between the field and the stands to let fans in on the moments, players, and personalities that make up the team mythology, for better or worse.
Fifty years went by before The Houston Astros had a Hall of Fame inductee. Then Craig Biggio became their first. Two years later Jeff Bagwell emerged as another inductee. Biggio and Bagwell are arguably the two most influential and memorable players in Astro history. When they showed up in the last 1980s, the team entered its “Golden Age.” Biggio and Bawell were National League All-Stars who own most of the club’s hitting records. They helped lead the team to their first ever, and only, World Series game.
