Submitted by Dick Walleshauser, Astros manager
The 2019 Astros won the 55+ division of the Atlanta Area Mens Senior Baseball League (AAMSBL) by sweeping the second place Giants in the best of three finals at North Cobb Christian High School by the scores of 4-3 and 19-2.
This was the Astros first title in the 25-year history of the team that started in the 38+ division. The core of the team has been together for 15+ of those years and stuck together through the good and bad years.
The Astros finished the regular season 15-3. The defending champion Giants finished the season 14-3 and had beaten the Astros 2 of 3 in the regular season, but were unable to defend the title.
