Take a Look at These Throwback Photos Before They Were Astros
The Houston Astros are on the verge of winning another World Series. So we thought it would be a good time to look at some of your favorite Astros Baseball Players before they were superstars with their time with the Astros double-A affiliate Corpus Christi Hooks. I have also included one of Justin Verlander's from his days with the Detroit Tigers double-A affiliate, Erie Seawolves! Have you ever been to Whataburger Field in Corpus Christi? This is why I go to minor-league baseball games. You never know what future superstars are taking the field. Thanks to the CC Hooks Facebook page for posting these awesome photos! The Astros will take on the Seattle Marines in the American League Divisional Round in the best-of-five series. Take a look at the schedule below.
Check out the babyfaces of Altuve, Bregman, Valdez, Tucker, McCuller's Jr, and also a baby-face Justin Verlander.
Here is one of Justin Verlander from the Detroit Double-A Affiliate, Erie Seawolves

MATTRESS MACK IS HOUSTON:
Mack's status has recently elevated after a Philadelphia Phillies fan started talking trash about the Houston Astros! Mack did not back down, he had his Houston Astros back. The way he handled that situation has given him an iconic status in H-Town and has also brought us some epic memes as well. It's only fitting that he throws out the first pitch of game 6 of the World Series. If you haven't seen the viral video of Mack, click here. You will hear some strong language. Mack will throw out the first pitch at game 6. George Strait will call 'play ball.' THIS IS TEXAS!
