The Houston Astros started as Houston Colt 45s in 1962 in the National League and during their time in the MLB have bounced around various leagues and divisions. The name Astros comes from Houston's connection with the Space Program and they took this name in 1965 when they started playing in the Astrodome. They presently play at the Minute Maid Park in the American League West Division and their colors are navy blue, orange and white.
Things did not start well for the Astros and it took fifteen years for them to win their first Division title in 1980. Despite more Division wins over the next twenty years they never made it past the Playoffs. In 2004 things started to turn around as they won the National League Division Series for the first time but lost the subsequent NLCS. The following season they went one better and made it to the World Series but lost to the White Sox 4-0. 2017 was the season fans had long been hoping for as they won the World Series for the first time beating the Dodgers over seven games.
The Pittsburgh Pirates were originally called the Alleghenys in the 1880s but became the Pirates in 1891. They got their name from a newspaper report that the team had poached players from the Philadelphia Athletics and the name Pirates stuck. The Pirates play in the National League in the Central Division, although they previously played in the East Division from 1969 to 1993. They have played at PNC Park since 2001 after moving from Three Rivers Stadium. Their colors are black, gold and white.
The Pirates have had periods of success. They won three successive NL Pennants from 1901 and captured their first World Series in 1909. There were four more world titles in 1925, 1960, 1971 and 1979, but since then postseason action has been scarce. Three consecutive East Division titles from 1990 did not bring any further success nor did Wild Cards in 2013, 2014 and 2015.
