Fan Pack Fun 2012 -- Houston We Have a Problem

The Houston Astros are leaving the National League after this season.  I'm not really sure how their fans feel about it but the team sure isn't going out on top.  Maybe that's some consolation.  On the other hand they're moving to a division that includes the Rangers, Angels and A's.  (BTW--I'm not gloating,  my Cubs are the next worst team in baseball.)

So anyways, this is the last fan pack from the Houston Astros National League Ball Club.

 Pocket Schedule
An Astros player.  (He did hit a home run this week.)

Reports are that the team will be announcing logo and uniform changes this fall.  Here's a link to a recent story.
