No future Astros and one former Astro celebrating today:
RHP Ken Forsch (66)
Drafted by the Astros in the 18th round in 1968, Forsch pitched for Houston from 1970 to 1980. In 421 appearances, he was 78-81 with 50 saves, a 3.18 ERA and a 1.250 WHIP. Even more impressive in this day and age of bullpen specialists, Forsch threw 36 complete games for Houston. He was an All-Star in 1976 for Houston and in 1981 for the California Angels to whom he was traded in April of 1981 for Dickie Thon.
