Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"At Texas Tech, I was a defensive end and linebacker. E.J. Holub (Kansas City Chiefs) was on that team. It was an easy year for me. They ran everything away from E.J., which meant the opposite end did all the work. I played baseball, too, but football is THE sport for Texas high school kids. Around where I live there isn't that much opportunity to play baseball. It's not as populated as the other areas of Texas, so the scouts don't come around as often. But I still played and did all right. In my third year at Texas Tech, I came up with a pinched nerve in my neck. Every time I got hit in a football game, I felt it for a long time. I had a bad knee, too, so I figured if I was going to make it at all in professional sports it would be baseball. That's why I quit football." - Chuck Harrison in The Lompoc Record (Sandy Padwe, 07/23/1966, Astros' Chuck Harrison Would Rather Recall Times Spent On The Gridiron , Page 2-B)

Did you know that when Chuck Harrison wore #22 during his rookie season, he made a little franchise history? The team was originally known as the Colt .45s , from 1962 through 1964, and that number was used during those years by Robin Roberts (1962), Al Heist (1962), John Paciorek (1963), Jim Beauchamp (1964), and Joe Gaines (1964), but after they changed to the Astros in 1965, Harrison became their first player to wear it in a regular season game.
