The Houston Astros are an American professional baseball team based in Houston. The Astros compete in Major League Baseball (MLB) as a member club of the American League (AL) West division, having moved to the division in 2013 after spending their first 51 seasons in the National League (NL).
The Houston Buffaloes were the city of Houston’s professional baseball team from 1888 to 1961. They played in the minor league.
In spite of the fact that expansion from the National League ultimately resulted in the addition of a Major League Baseball franchise to the state of Texas in 1962, Houston officials had been working toward this goal for years prior.
George Kirksey and Craig Cullinan Jr., who had led a failed attempt to purchase the St. Louis Cardinals in 1952; R.E. “Bob” Smith, a prominent oilman and real estate magnate in Houston who was brought in for his financial resources; and Judge Roy Hofheinz, a former Mayor of Houston and Harris County Judge who was recruited for his salesmanship and political style. These four men were primarily responsible for bringing Major League Baseball to Houston.
They established the Houston Sports Association in order to facilitate the acquisition of a major league franchise for the city of Houston and used it as their primary organization.
