The Houston Astros have retired nine jersey numbers of some great players who contributed very massively to the growth of the team.

The team is not known for any direct formula through which they retire any of their jersey numbers and has for a long time not retired any number after No. 5 of Hall of Famers Jeff Bagwell (2007) and the No. 7 of Craig Biggio (’08) were retired.

Their other retired numbers include a pair of players who passed away while with the Astros, a successful pitcher-turned-broadcaster-turned-manager and a former National League Cy Young Award winner. Here’s a look at the Astros’ retired numbers.

According to reports, the Houston Astros have only two of their players who made it to the hall of fame wearing an Astros cap on their plaque which has been mounted.
