We have no future or former Astros having birthdays today so I tried to find another player or two that had some tangential relationship to the Astros. What I found was a trip down memory lane.
IF Steve Ontiveros (60)
Ontiveros played for the San Francisco Giants from 1973 to 1976 and for the Chicago Cubs from 1977 to 1980. I stumbled across this play-by-play recap of a game between the Cubs and the Astros from June 17, 1978, in which Ontiveros appeared. There is nothing monumental about this game or even particularly interesting, but all of the names brought back so many memories for me. So I thought I would share it.
UT Mark Sweeney (42)
Sweeney spent 14 seasons in the majors playing for seven different teams. It was a game in which he played for the Dodgers in August 2007 that caught my eye. Sweeney was the goat of this game as the Astros prevailed. These memories are more recent but the story creates some great visuals.
