Another Flashback Friday is on the horizon, and a calendar flip from April to May means it’s time to roll out a new throwback jersey.
This Friday (May 4), the Astros will wear the shooting star jersey the team wore in the 1960s, after the name changed from Colt .45s to the Astros and the team moved into the brand new Astrodome.
Rusty Staub, one of the original members of the 1965 Astros, will throw out the ceremonial first pitch before Friday’s game. He will also sign autographs from 6-6:30 p.m. CT. Autograph vouchers (with proceeds going to the Astros In Action Foundation), can be purchased here.
