On October 25,2005 Minute Maid Park played host to the first World Series game ever played in the state of Texas. With 'October Dreams' and the tenth anniversary of this momentous occasion, Terry Lawrence has brought us all a great way to relieve a time that brought so much excitement to Houston and to baseball. A terrific read for any baseball fan."
