1988 SPRING TRAINING

Of Course We Got 3 Teams in Texas, And One of them is the Astros they set up spring training in Olsen Field at College Station, TX so we got to fix these problems like Chili Davis who got 1 home run in spring training in his Sophomore Year as an Astro, Paul Landin made a nice month of March going 30 for 59 including 8 doubles and 9 home runs, and Pitching Staff might did it too!, Manny Hernandez struck out 12 Batters in Spring Training, and well we should do that to finish in the top for 1988.
