HOUSTON, TX – It was a celebration for one of the best. After twenty-eight years in Houston, the voice of the Astros, Milo Hamilton, hung up the mic and in true Houston style, the best in baseball came to honor him. Craig Biggio, Nolan Ryan and a special video presentation all to salute the man behind the mic. If that doesn’t say something about the impact you’ve made, nothing does.

“He’s seen a lot, he’s done a lot and we’re really going to miss him,” Craig Biggio says.

Nolan Ryan sums it up this way, “I just think that his passion for our team and the energy that he brings to his broadcasts and the fact that he wanted the team to well and you could tell that he would get down just as the team did when things weren’t going right.”

Milo, you’re the best.
