Super Sunday Astros Crawfish Boil - June 15, 2014

Happy Father's Day from TCB.


Happy father's day from everyone at TCB. I do want to thank my dad, John. The man that helped me fall in love with baseball, and the Astros specifically. He didn't force his own team on me, he even adopted the Astros as his own after moving from D.C. area. I can't tell you the number of wiffle ball games we had and times we played catch until it was dark. He taught me the right way to play the game, supported me in my short little league career. He taught me how to use a scorecard. For all this I say this, thanks dad.
