A Houston Astros fan made a great catch of a foul ball with two bare hands while near the right field foul pole during Saturday night's game at Minute Maid Park against the Colorado Rockies.
It happened in the top of the eight inning when Rockies infielder Tyler Colvin hit a ball towards the right field corner that hooked foul. An older Astros fan stood up and caught the ball with his two bare hands. Nice catch by the fan.

Often maligned for his real or perceived lack of hustle in the past it can not be denied that Lee can still hit the ball better than the average player. In the final...
HOUSTON - Left-hander Wandy Rodriguez, at a seasoned 33 years old, made the first opening-day start of his eight-year career on Friday night.
Right-hander Lucas Harrell made on Saturday just his third start with the Astros since being claimed off waivers from the White Sox last July.
Right-hander Bud Norris, who just three summers ago was the brash and cocky midseason call-up,...
The Houston Astros won their opening series with the Colorado Rockies. They won two of three games and did it with a long time formula for winners. They had some timely hits, but more importantly they had very good starting pitching.
Bud Norris was the sort of pitcher the Astros need him to be more consistently than he has been in the past on Sunday. He was able to last seven innings...
After the Houston Astros had four errors in an Opening Day loss, manager Brad Mills stressed the importance of cleaning up their play.
Since then the Astros haven't had had error and have been taking advantage of their opponents miscues.

HOUSTON- Nameplates are often last on the checklist in the frenzy of player transactions, thus while Justin Maxwell was sufficiently outfitted for his Astros debut and announced his arrival with a two-run, pinch-hit home run in the eighth inning on Monday night at Minute Maid Park, the space next to the No. 22 above his locker remained blank afterward.
That logistical hazard did...
The Houston Astros claimed outfielder Justin Maxwell off waivers from the New York Yankees in search of a right-handed bench bat who could provide some pop. And in Maxwell's first at-bat with the 'Stros, he hit a two-run homer on Monday.
HOUSTON (AP) -- Travis Buck drove in two runs, Justin Maxwell homered in his Houston debut and the Astros rebounded from an early deficit thanks to sloppy defensive play by the Atlanta Braves in an 8-3 win on Monday night.
The loss drops Atlanta to 0-4 for the first time since losing 10 straight to open the 1988 season. The Astros are 3-1 after finishing last season with baseball...

HOUSTON (AP) -- Chipper Jones came off the disabled list and began his final season in the majors with a single and a two-run homer to help the Atlanta Braves get their first win of the season, 6-4 over the Houston Astros on Tuesday night.
The nearly 40-year-old Jones didn't look a bit rusty in his return after missing Atlanta's first four games following surgery on March...
