Houston Astros Will Remain Houston Astros, Owner Jim Crane Assures Fans

Breaking news -- or, more aptly, breaking non-news. If you were worried that the Houston Astros might be changing their name in the near future, worry no longer. Owner Jim Crane has assured the team's fan base that a name change isn't happening.

"You asked for change and we added several fan friendly initiatives last week, and we hope you like them," Crane said today in a taped video message to season-ticket holders. "We will continue to listen, and to look for additional ways to improve on and off the field.

"One thing that we are not going to change is the name. We received strong feedback and consensus among season-ticket holders and many fans, and we will not change the name Astros. The Houston Astros are here to stay."

The Astros are in a major transition phase, as a move to the American League West is planned for 2013. But no matter what happens, they'll still be the Astros for the foreseeable future.
