Roger Metzger, a native Texan, was the Astros' starting shortstop for the Houston Astros from 1971 to 1977. During that time, Metzger won a Gold Glove, led the Majors in triples twice and made many good friends and wonderful memories .
Metzger joins up this episode to kick-off Season 4 sharing some of these memories about Houston Astro baseball in the 1970s. We talked about the night a baseball game at the Astrodome got rained out, Metzger hitting his first Major League home run off Hall of Famer Bob Gibson, playing with Houston legends like Cesar Cedeno and J. R. Richard and much more.
