Lance Berkman and Roy Oswalt on Saturday night signed one day contracts and retired as Houston Astros. Berkman (Yankees) and Oswalt (Phillies) both were traded away from the Astros during the 2010 season for prospects. The two met the media before Saturday’s game and shared excitement about coming back and shared with players and fans that nothing is more fun than playing baseball for the Astros when the team is in contention.

The two retire as Astros as some of the all-time greats in Astros history. Oswalt finished his Astros career with 143 wins and 1,593 strikeouts both 2nd on the all-time Astros list behind Joe Nickro (144 wins) and Nolan Ryan (1,866 strikeouts) respectively. Berkman finished his Astros career 1st in Slugging% (.549), On-Base% (.410), and OPS% (.959) and finished 2nd in homeruns with 326 to Jeff Bagwell who retired with 449.
