Baseball's scrimmage friday against coastal bend, two astros icons were there.
One of them, of course, jaguar baseball head coach terry puhl.
The other, coach puhl's astro teammate for 12 and a half years.
Jose cruz played for the astros' first great teams in the eighties.
To this day, cruz is the astros' all-time leader in triples, and he is in the top five in 11 career astros' stat categories.
Cheo was at the scrimmage to see his old teammate and to see his nephew, amilcar montanez, play for the jaguars.
I asked jose crus about the current astros, who are one win away from going to the world series.
If we can sweep the yankees there it would be a lot better.
We can come home, be relaxed, try to get the nationals.
With verlander pitching tonight we have a good chance to win.
I just want them to win it, come home.cc .
Jose cruz' jersey number 25 is retired by the astros.
