THE BIG 5-0: The Astros announced Thursday that they "will tap into their old uniform roots next season as part of the franchise's 50th anniversary celebration." In Houston, Steve Campbell noted the team will "wear throwback jerseys from past Astros eras" for Friday home games, and each month will "highlight a jersey from a different era on these Flashback Fridays." The team also "unveiled a 50th anniversary patch ... that will be worn on the caps and jerseys" in '12. Among their other plans for their 50th anniversary celebration, the Astros will release a special DVD and 50th anniversary gear, "including a cap, polo shirt and T-shirt" (CHRON.com, 9/22).
