Astros History: 162 Games Played

Brett Davis-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

A look at all the players that went 162 games for the Houston Astros franchise.

As the season closes I wanted to highlight all the players who managed to play in 162 games on the season. We'll start with the most recent and work our ways backwards. Before we get to that, though, I want to make note that no one over the age of 31 has managed to play 162 games in a season for the Astros, highlighting how you and how good you have to be to stick in a lineup everyday. Jose Altuve played in 147 games this year and he's very young and very good.

162 Game Club:

Carlos Lee, 2007: The first year Lee was with the Astros he played in every game. He hit .303/.354/.528 and led the league in sacrafice hits, with 13, and grounding into double plays, 27.

Jeff Bagwell, 1999: Hit .304/.454/.591 and led the league in walks, with 149, and runs scored 143.

Craig Biggio, 1997: Hit .309/.415/.501 and led the league in plate appearances, with 744, runs scored, with 146, and (surprise, surprise) 34 hit by pitches.

Jeff Bagwell, 1997: Hit .286/.425/.592 in 717 plate appearances. He didn't lead the league in any categories but did hit 43 homeruns and walked more than he struck out, 127 walks to 122 strikeouts.

Craig Biggio, 1996: Hit .288/.386/.415 and led the league in (guess what) hit by pitches, with 27.

Jeff Bagwell, 1996: Hit .315/.451/.470 and led the league in doubles, with 48.

Craig Biggio, 1992: Hit .277/.378/.369 and led the league in plate appearances, with 721.

Steve Finley, 1992: Hit .292/.355/.407 in 686 plate appearances. He didn't lead the league in any categories but did hit 13 triples and stole 44 bags in 53 chances.

Jeff Bagwell, 1992: Hit .273/.368/.444 and led the league in sacrifice flies, with 13.

Bill Doran, 1987: Hit .283/.365/.406 in 719 plate appearances. He didn't lead the league in any categories but did hit 16 homeruns and walked more than he struck out, with 82 walks to 64 strikeouts.

Enos Cabell, 1978: First man to accomplish the feat for the Astros franchise. Hit .295/.321/.398 and led the league in at bats, with 660. Which is interesting because he didn't lead the league in plate appearances, with 694.
