This is the second in a possibly endless series of articles based on random Houston Astros plate appearances. I say endless because there are somewhere around 3⁄4 million of these, and another 70 or so every day. If the Astros stopped playing baseball today, I’d still have enough to draw on every day for 2,000 years....but I’m not exactly sure if I’ll live that long. I guess I can hope.
I use random.org to generate a random year, game, and plate appearance. I landed on 1989, game 104, and plate appearance 33 (of 70).
