It’s an honor to be featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated (although some say it’s a curse). The Houston Astros have seen a steady stream of features in the last few years, and now Lance McCullers is featured on the latest edition of the weekly magazine, though you might not know it.  Lance’s hand showing his signature curveball grip in black and white dons the cover with the title “Why the Curveball is Taking Over the Game.”

McCullers and Astros GM Jeff Lunhow are featured in the Tom Verducci piece on the entire history of the curveball, the rise in popularity in the league and some of the greats at the standout off-speed pitch.
