In recent years, throwback-style uniforms have become increasingly popular among sports fans. The Houston Astros appeared to have that in mind as they designed their new uniforms.
In 2013, when the team moves to the American League, Houston will be ditching the red-and-black star and pinstriped jerseys
it has used for years. Instead, the club will give a nod to Astros
jerseys of the past with its new look.
Fans may not be surprised about the new apparel after photos of the logo were accidentally leaked in late October, but they're still a cause for excitement in Houston. A new league, a new look and a possible comeback by Roger Clemens? What's not to love about the new-look Astros?

Last week, we brought you an image of the new Astros logo.

The Houston Astros have unveiled new uniforms, getting rid of the brick red they've worn since 2000 and returning to the orange and navy blue used for most of the franchise's existence.
The new look coincides with Houston's move from the National League to the American League for 2013.
The color scheme is the same used from 1962-93. They're also using the logo from...
This offseason I'm going to focus on my projections above anything else. I'll be working my way through team-by-team, worst regular season record to best record. So that means we start with the newest addition to the American League, the Houston Astros.

Tweet Much of the suspense was absent due to leaks of the Houston Astros’ new logo via the team’s website and through a local sports & outdoors store, but that didn’t stop fans from turning out yesterday to see the official unveiling at Minute Maid Park. 2012 All-Star second baseman Jose Altuve, outfielder Justin [...]
It is no secret that the Houston Astros love changing things up when it comes to the design of their logo and uniforms. From the early days of the Colt .45s with “Turk” Farrell and Rusty Staub to the magnificent blue, orange and yellow days with Nolan Ryan and Mike Scott to the blue and gold of Jeff Bagwell and Craig Biggio to the more recent red and black of Lance Berkman and...
