Happy Birthday - 1/5

No future Astros with birthdays today, but this former Astro celebrates ~

OF Milt Thompson (56)
Drafted in the second round in 1979 by Atlanta, Thompson came to Houston in a July 1994 trade with the Phillies. Thompson played for Houston in 101 games over two seasons in 1994 and 1995.  He was unable to duplicate his earlier success for Atlanta (.302 BA over 98 games), Philadelphia (.279 BA over five seasons), and St. Louis (.274 over four seasons) as he batted only .229 for Houston. In 2014, he was the Hitting Coach for the Kansas City High A affiliate.
