Astros to make decison on Colt .45s jerseys on Friday
HOUSTON (KTRK) -- The Houston Astros say they will announce Friday if they will drop the gun off their classic Colt .45s logo.
This season is the Astros' 50th anniversary, and the team will celebrate the anniversary with "Flashback Fridays" in which every Friday the team will wear a retro uniform. That includes one with the iconic Colt .45s logo, which has a pistol right on the front.
Major League Baseball originally wanted the pistol removed, but now the league says it's up to the Astros.
The ball club says they're listening to the fans on this one, and will announce their decision on Friday, March 9.
