Follow the Astros of the Past...with Him

I have posted a story about Ken Webster who is following the 1966 Astros on Twitter. It is an intriguing concept that Webster is executing.

His project got me wondering "Who were the Astros of the Future in 1966?"

With all due respect to Astros County, here is a look at Tal's Farm in 1966:

Oklahoma City 89ers- Jim Ray a right-handed pitcher who ended up being my Astros Buddy several years in the future.

Amarillo Sonics- Doug Rader and Don Wilson

Salisbury (NC) Astros- John Paciorek, who went to have a career 1.000 batting average.

Cocoa Astros- Bob Watson

Durham Bulls- Larry Howard

Bismarck-Mandan Pards- Scipio Spinks
