You can order it online and some retro sports stores at the mall have them.
The Houston Astros have a promotional lunch box given to some number of fans at one or more of their games before the start of the school year. Manufactured by Kraft.
The short answer: probably. News of the scandal first broke in a Nov. 12, 2019, report by Ken Rosenthal and Evan Drellich of The Athletic. It detailed a system in which the Houston Astros would monitor opposing catchers’ signs with cameras, then alert Astros batters of changeups and other off-speed pitches. A player or other employee would bang on a trash can to communicate to the current batter that one of these pitches was being thrown.
Rosenthal and Drellich had credible sources, having talked to four former Astros players, but the smoking gun came later that day, from a video by Jomboy Media on YouTube. In it, Jimmy O’Brien, founder of Jomboy Media, was able to find clear evidence of suspicious banging occurring just before off-speed pitches.
Since the news first broke last week, more evidence has come to light. Another report by Ken Rosenthal and Evan Drellich detailed emails from an Astros executive who asked for aid in stealing signs from the franchise’s scouting division. More damning footage has made the rounds on various baseball forum sites, putting a cloud over their championship season in 2017.
It’s hard to say what will come next for the Astros organization. Fines are expected by a great many baseball fans, writers, and commentators, but larger punishments, such as bans, might be more difficult to manage. Whatever the decision will be, it is sure to make waves and leave a lasting impact on the future of baseball.
Probably less than what you paid for it. Just a guess
they are best best best friends!
The Houston Astros have played in one World Series, that being the 2005 Series when they lost to the Chicago White Sox, 4 games to 0.
Before the the Houston baseball organizatin decided to call their team the Houston Astros they were the Colt 45's. They were the Colts from 1962 until 1965 when they started playing in the Astrodome.

A 1985 Houston Astros Team signed baseball with the key signatures Ryan, and Davis is worth about $75.-$100. I haven't seen many Astro team signed baseballs up for auction lately, and the price stated above might have to be updated but should be close. The price is based on average prices of recently closed auctions. Prices may vary based on condition, and the type of authenticity that accompanies the baseball. Prices may also vary based on the amount of signatures, and key signatures acquired. The more complete the baseball with key signatures the more valuable. Note: a Nolan Ryan single signed baseball could sell for more money than the Astros team signed baseball that has Ryan's signature. A signed baseball without a creditable letter of authenticity could sell for half the market value or less. Condition is as important. I will leave a link for Astro team signed baseballs complete with lists of key signatures, and links to full team rosters. As soon as I come across a more recent auction I will up date the price. Check back soon.
I heard that in Arizona the pitchers determine what jerseys to wear, so maybe that's what they do in houston, just an observation. It depends from team to team, but I know the Astros wear their alternate red jerseys on Sundays and holidays. Otherwise, it just comes down to white at home and gray on the road.
The word Astros is short for astronauts. They are called the Astros because NASA has a large base that produces a lot of jobs in Houston, Texas. Houston considers NASA to be a big part of their town, so therefor when the name The Houston Colt .45's was changed the name Astros fit well because NASA was becoming big in the midst of the space race with Russia.
It is a pitcher resembling Roger Clemens in the midst of winding up and it reads "Rocket Man" under the the figure. It was designed with his input. I also own the glove. Louisville Slugger makes a limited amount every year.
Yes! He was one of the 'killer bees'. You know? From the spelling bee episodes and the one where they want Cookie to join them.
Two seasons ... 2003 and 2004.

The club was initially founded in 1962 as the Houston Colt .45's and defeated the Chicago Cubs in their first game, 11-2 on April 10. In 1965, the Colt .45's changed their name to the Houston Astros, and played baseball's first indoor game at the Astrodome on April 9, defeating the New York Yankees 2-1 in an exhibition game. So, to answer the question, the "Astros" debuted on April 9, 1965 though the Houston team had been in place for 3 years. The Astros first season in MLB was in 1962.
Don't know the percentages, but left field is more common. Most batters are right handed, and, on averge, a batter is more likely to "pull" the ball when he hits it. (Note: when a batter is said to "hit to the opposite field", that means that a right-handed batter hits to right field or a left-handed batter hits to left field. On the surface, this is not "opposite field" at all. But it's called "opposite field" because it goes against the natural tendency of a right hander to hit to left field and a left-hander to hit to right field.)
Because he wanted to be close to home, and he wanted to spend time with his workout buddy, Roger Clemens, who also ditched New York. Don't feel bad about losing Pettite though. You've got Carl Pavano and Jaret Wright to replace the arm troubles that Amndy Pettite had. GO SOX!!
That's a good question and I haven't been able to find that out. But being as how he is a railroad engineer and he works for the Astros whose team colors are brick red, black, and sand, my guess would be that he wears Astros colors on the train. If you click on the link on this page called 'Junction Jack' you can find some cool stuff about Junction Jack.

This plate featuring an original painting by Christopher Paluso is a "Single Issue Release" with a total edition size of 1598 pieces for the 10" plate, and 8402 for the 8 1/2" plate. Limited edition or in this case "Single Issue Release" is A term often used by manufacturers of collectibles to indicate scarcity. A limited edition means just that - production of the item in question will be limited to a certain number. However, that number may be large or small, and is relevant to the amount of collectors interested in it. The value of a limited edition item is high only if the number made is less than the number of collectors that desire the item. If the limited amount made is more than the amount of collectors interested, the value will go down from the issued price. If the piece reads Limited to a certain amount of "Firing Days" This means that the product will be produced for that amount of time. There is no set number and the "Limited Edition" can be over produced. More Items than collectors means less value. Often theses plate will have a resale value of less than the issued price.
