Colt 45 ==> April 10, 1961: Today in Texas History #txhx

Today in 1961 the Houston Colt 45s opened their first season playing against and beating the Chicago Cubs 11-2. They later changed their name to the Astros.

Here’s hoping today’s Astros can channel their inner Colt 45s from that opening game and win the rest of the season this year. Have faith! =)

Now if I could only find a vintage T-shirt with this logo too.
