Astros Celebrate 50 Years With Colts Jerseys

Fifty years to the day of their very first game as a franchise (April 10, 1962), the Houston Astros played Minute Maid Park wearing throwback jerseys emblazoned with the team's first name, the Colt .45s. The Astros also unveiled a "Walk of Fame" earlier in the day, but ended up losing 6-4 to the Atlanta Braves. PHOTOS BY GROOVEHOUSE
