Today’s question: Who was the first Minnesota Viking to rush for more than 6,000 yards in their career while playing with Minnesota?
Yesterday’s question and answer: The Houston franchise joined the Major Leagues in 1962 as did the New York Mets. What was the Houston team called? Answer: Colt .45’s. They were the Houston Colt .45s for their first three seasons before taking on the Astros name in 1965. Harry Craft lasted for three seasons before manager Lum Harris took over. Almost like the dismal New York Mets, the .45s/Astros lost 90-plus games in each of their first seven seasons. The Mets lost 100-plus in five of their first six seasons.
