Last November, it was decided that the Houston Astros would make the move to the American League.
According to Erik Matuszewski of Businessweek.com, the Astros are the first team since 1998 to switch leagues, and up until the switch, they had been in the National League for 51 years.
Also according to Matuszewski, the switch came with the sale of the Astros to Jim Crane. With the switch, both leagues will have an equal amount of teams.
We are going to look at a few things the Astros are looking forward to for the 2013 season as a part of the American League.
