The Rogers family grew up in Wichita Falls and often traveled to Houston for Astros games back when the Astrodome was new. Siblings Jane and Mike moved to Houston as adults, and dad Harold bought season tickets. Harold even threw out the first pitch once at the Astrodome and once at Minute Maid Park. Last year the family, who all live in Houston now, were thrilled to see the Astros win the World Series. Harold took each family member to one World Series game. “The conversation at our family gatherings is often dominated by discussion about the Astros, memories of past games or reflection on future games,” said Jane Rogers Knowlton.
