With the recent inductions into the Astros Hall of Fame, here’s a look at some players who could soon join them.
The class included Bob Aspromonte, Jeff Bagwell, Craig Biggio, Jose Cruz, Larry Dierker, Joe Morgan, Joe Niekro, Shane Reynolds, J.R. Richard, Nolan Ryan, Mike Scott, Jim Umbricht, Don Wilson and Jimmy Wynn. This is excellent company, and there are some more names who deserve to be among them.
This list doesn’t include active players, though there are certainly a few who could end up there. The most likely seems to be Jose Altuve, who’s already sixth in club history in hits and first in batting average. George Springer, Carlos Correa, Alex Bregman and Yordan Alvarez could all potentially end up there too if they stay with the club long enough.
This list includes former players who could end up in the Astros Hall of Fame as soon as next year. They all had great impacts on the franchise, and one could argue that some of them should have their numbers retired as well.
