Houston Astros Tickets

You’ll hopefully get to watch the Houston Astros crush their opponents at Minute Maid Park when you buy Houston Astros tickets. The team has been headquartered in Houston since its inception in 1962 although they were at first known as the Houston Colt .45s. Originally part of the National League, they moved to the American League in 2013, so you’ll be watching them compete in the AL West divisional standings when you get your Houston Astros tickets.

Early Years and Astrodome

Although the team now plays at Minute Maid Park, they were housed in the Astrodome from 1965 to 1999. When first constructed, it was the first domed sports stadium in the world, and it was even referred to by some as the eighth wonder of the world. Alas, the novelty of their playing field didn’t do anything for the Astros performance on the diamond, and they remained near the bottom of the league standings for most of the next decade. During the ’80s, the Astros won their division twice, in 1980 and 1986, and they qualified for the postseason in the unusual strike year of 1981. Nevertheless, the league pennant eluded them each time, much to the chagrin of those who paid good money for their MLB Houston Astros tickets.

Houston Astros Late ’90s Success

The Astros’ fortunes turned around in the ’90s, and they won their division in 1997, 1998, 1999 and 2001, led by “The Killer Bs”: Jeff Bagwell, Craig Biggio, Derek Bell and Sean Berry. They were unable to proceed on to win the league pennant in any of these years. After winning a wild card spot in 2004 and again failing to proceed any further, the Astros won another wild card berth in 2005, and this time, they actually captured the National League pennant. In the World Series, the Chicago White Sox proceeded to sweep all four games, and the Houston Astros have not yet qualified for another championship appearance. Their most recent postseason accolade was earning a wild card position in 2015.
