The Harris County Domed Stadium has been given many names since it opened its doors in 1965 as the worlds first indoor ballpark. It was described as the "Eighth Wonder of the World" and an architectural triumph. Later it was chastised for the subsequent invention of Astro-turf which led to the loss of grass in many ballparks. However, long after the Houston Astros leave for a modern park, it will always be remembered by young and old, as the "Astrodome." For 35 seasons the "Dome" has gone through some renovations but always been the loyal home to the Astros. One of the field's best moments came on September 25, 1986, before 32,808 screaming fans when the 'stros clinched the Western Division title behind the brilliant no-hit performance of Mike Scott. In this image, Scott is inducing San Francisco's Will Clark to ground one of the pitchers masterful split-finger fastballs down to first base. Scott will record the putout, his 18th of the game, and close the books on a 2-0 win, a baseball classic, and a division crown. The Astros on the field? They were Glenn Davis (1b), Bill Doran (2b), Dickie Thon (ss), Denny Walling (3b), Alan Ashby (c), Jose Cruz (lf), Billy Hatcher (cf) and Kevin Bass (rf).
