The season got off to a rough start, and fans weren’t too excited about that. But they’ve been a lot more competitive in the past month, and people are starting to trickle back into the ball park.
Houston, Texas (PRWEB) June 19, 2013
The 2013 season is over two months old, and the Houston Astros are slowly but surely making some noise in the AL West.
After starting the season very poorly, the Astros have been much better lately, and are a respectable 5-7 through the first 12 games of June. With a number of young players up and down the roster, Houston could improve even more throughout the season as they gain more experience and confidence.
MyTicketIn.com marketing manager Karissa Hulsey believes that the recent success the team has had should create a larger demand for Houston Astros tickets.
“The season got off to a rough start, and fans weren’t too excited about that,” Hulsey said. “But they’ve been a lot more competitive in the past month, and people are starting to trickle back into the ballpark.”
Despite the poor record, there is a lot of potential on the roster, and even more players may get a chance to contribute as they are called up this summer.
“Everyone wants to be the first one to see the next big star on the team,” Hulsey said, “and you never know when that player will get his chance to shine.”
There are several young, talented players on the Astros roster already making a big impact. Second baseman and fan favorite Jose Altuve may be the best known for his height, or lack thereof, but he is also one of the best players at his position in the league. The dynamic 2B plays much bigger than his 5-foot-5 stature would suggest.
Catcher Jason Castro is in the midst of a breakout campaign in Houston and could very well represent the club in the All-Star Game next month. The soon-to-be 26-year old is playing like one of the top catchers in the American League, and he could be the Astros answer behind the plate for years to come.
Few players in the majors have as much power as Chris Carter, who has smashed 13 home runs already this season. When he makes contact with the ball, there is a very good chance that it is going to leave the yard.
The Astros pitching staff is anchored by Bud Norris, and the big righty has done well for his ball club, notching a 3.47 ERA through his first 14 starts of the season. He’s been very durable for Houston, never making fewer than 27 starts since 2010.
With several moves likely to be made at the trade deadline, the Astros roster figures to be very fluid between now and the end of the season. No matter who is in uniform, the experience at Minute Maid Park always makes Astros tickets a worthy investment, and with the prospect of fresh new talent on the way, big things could be in store in Houston.
