PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

From the Lone Star State's first MLB franchise - the expansion Colt .45s of the early '60s -- and the erection of the Astrodome, the world's first multi-purpose domed stadium to the roster of baseball greats that made their names as 'Stros, the Houston Astros have long instilled a boundless sense of pride in their fan base deep in the heart of Texas. As the team celebrates its milestone 50th Anniversary in 2012, Major League Baseball Productions and A+E Networks Home Entertainment invite Astros fans to join in the festivities with the five-DVD set, Houston Astros 50th Anniversary Collector's Edition. Saluting four classic full television broadcasts with ESSENTIAL GAMES OF THE HOUSTON ASTROS, plus the all-new, feature-length documentary special, ASTROS MEMORIES, this commemorative set is a must-have for Astros fans everywhere!

From the roof-raising euphoria of the Astrodome to the open-air adoration of Minute Maid Park, relive the cascade of emotions and joys as four ESSENTIAL GAMES OF THE HOUSTON ASTROS are presented on DVD for the first time!

* 1986 MIKE SCOTT'S NO-HITTER CLINCHES DIVISION vs. SF, September 25, 1986 - The Astros punctuate their 25th season's celebration with the double delight of clinching the division behind Scott's no-hit masterpiece.

* 2005 NLDS CLINCHER-18-INNINGS vs. ATL, October 9, 2005 - Chris Burke's solo home run in the bottom of the 18th caps the Astros 7-6 victory in the longest game in postseason history.

* CRAIG BIGGIO'S 3,000TH HIT vs. COL, June 28, 2007 - Biggio entered three hits shy of the 3,000 hit milestone, then promptly collected five hits in the game and sparked the winning rally which ended with Carlos Lee's walk-off grand slam!
