Happy Birthday - 5/31

One future Astro with a birthday today:

3B Cristopher Luciano (18)
Luciano will be making his professional debut with DSL Astros Orange this season.

One former Astro also celebrates ~

CF Kenny Lofton (47)
Drafted by Houston in the 17th round in 1988, Lofton only played in 20 games for Houston in 1991 out of his 17 year major league career. He was traded, along with Dave Rohde, to Cleveland for RHP Willie Blair and C Ed Taubensee in December 1991 in what turned out to be a spectacularly bad trade. In 1992, Lofton was second in Rookie of the Year voting to Pat Listach. He was a six-time All-Star and a four-time Gold Glove. He played for 11 teams and had a career batting line of .299/.372/.423 with 622 stolen bases.
