Summary

Summary

The story of big-league baseball in the Bayou City before the Astrodome, the world's first indoor stadium. From the ramrod effort to get Houston into the majors to the last game played in swampy Colt Stadium, the book seeks to bring the colour and character of those early years back to life. It features photographs and interviews with ex-Colt .45 players, and is based heavily on Colt .45 archives.
