This home movie footage captures scenes from a baseball game between the Cincinnati Reds and the Houston Colt .45s (now known as the Houston Astros) in Houston on April 27, 1963. The Reds won 1-0. The Astros were established as the Colt .45s in 1962. The team changed its name three years later when it moved into the Astrodome.
