It was a special moment to see two old faces take the field for the Astros on friday, Lance Berkman and Roy Oswalt returned to retire Astros. It was only fitting that it was these two retired together. "The Big Puma" and "The Wizard of Os" were the the backbone and the face of the Astros in the 2000's. The 1990's we be forever remember by Bagwell embracing Biggio as they won 1997 NL Central division championship, 2000's will be marked by the 18 inning game that Berkman hit a grandslam in.

Let's take a look at some of the coverage for the event that happened over the weekend.
