Houston Astros’ All-Time Best Seasons: Recap

3 of 6

Left Field

2001: Lance Berkman

The Big Puma hit .331/.430/.620/1.051 with 55 doubles, 34 HRs, and 126 runs. And that wasn’t even his best season in an Astros uniform!

Center Field

1972/3: Cesar Cedeno

The 1972 and 73 seasons were nearly identical for Cedeno. He hit .320 and slugged .537 in both years, stole 55 and 56 bases, hit 22 and 25 home runs, 39 and 35 doubles, and 82 and 70 runs batted in, and won Gold Gloves in both seasons. That is a marvelous feat of consistency.

Right Field

2000: Moises Alou

Alou was one of the bright spots on a miserable Houston team that went 72-90. In 2000, he put up great numbers by posting .355/.416/.623 with 28 doubles, 30 HRs, and 114 runs batted in. Oh, and he only struck out 45 times.
