Friday Morning Hot Links


The first Astros quiz of the season will be uploaded at the bottom of this post, but first I have to unload some of these piping hot links.

-Alex Bregman will be in the booth tonight as an analyst for Game 3 of the World Series.

-Speaking of Alex Bregman, he, Dallas Keuchel, and Martin Maldonado have been named as Gold Glove finalists in their respective positions.

-The case for Houston Astro Pitcher Nate Eovaldi.

-Apparently, Arlington is a "better baseball city" than Houston.

-You can take your Christmas photo with Orbit this year November 10th and 11th!

-If you missed the season finale of Astros Bases Loaded, the next showing is tonight at 5:30.

-Rocco Baldelli is now officially a head coach at age 37. There were 24 players who played in the 2018 MLB season that were at least 37 years of age.

-You can play with an all-manager team in MVP Baseball 2005.

On This Day in Baseball History

In 1985 and down 3-2, the Royals won the Game 6 and eventually the series after this incorrect call enabled the Royals to continue playing in the 9th inning.

In 1995, Ken Bowersox threw the first pitch in Game 5 while in space.

In 1997, Edgar Renteria got the game-winning hit in Game 7 to make the Marlins the youngest expansion team ever to win the World Series.

In 2013, the Cardinals became the first team to win a World Series game off of a walk-off obstruction call.

Without any further ado, here is the first Astros quiz of the offseason! The topic is "Can You Name Every Houston Astro Who Appeared In A Game?" and the best part is somebody already made the quiz for me! I started off with an easy quiz to ease everyone in, but rest assured the offseason will be long so some of them will be much tougher and some might even end up being a bit easier too. Good luck and have fun and we'll have a new one next week.
