Happy Birthday - 3/29

Happy Birthday to ~

1B/2B Jared Cruz (20)
Cruz played his first professional season in the Braves organization in 2014, coming to Houston after the season ended. Cruz, who is originally from Melbourne, Australia, was the player to be named later in the July 2014 trade that sent RHP Andrew Robinson to the Braves.

One former Astro celebrates the day as well ~

UT Eric Bruntlett (37)
Drafted by Houston in the ninth round in 2000, Bruntlett spent five seasons, between 2003 and 2007 playing for the Astros, hitting .250/.323/.364 over 320 games. In November of 2007, he was traded along with Brad Lidge to the Phillies for Michael Bourn, Mike Costanzo and Geoff Geary. In August 2009, he became only the second player in major league history to end a game with an unassisted triple play.
