It’s a tall order, but this Astros fan’s first pitch may be one of the worst ever (video)

Carter’s three-run blast caps Astros’ comeback

Chris Carter’s a relatively emotionless slugger, a trait that can bring him at times some undue criticism, suggestions he might not care. A slow exit from the batter’s box in the eighth inning was deserved flare Tuesday night. He crushed a 439-foot, go-ahead homer to left field as far as Minute Maid Park’s enclosed roof would allow in a 4-2 Astros win over the A’s. If anything...

Astros fan spikes first pitch into the ground (Video)

A Houston Astros fan botched the ceremonial first pitch before Tuesday night's game at Minute Maid Park by spiking the ball into the ground.

Astros star in terrible mall commercial of their own

The “intentionally terrible” mall commercial that has caught fire this week has inspired numerous parodies, and Houston Astros pitchers Dallas Keuchel and Collin McHugh starred in a remake of their own.
