Astros in the Sky
Born: Jul 31, 1949
A second-round pick of the Astros in 1967, the Phoenix native had his one big league trial with the Astros in 1971. In seven games, he went 1-for-3 with a strikeout. In 1973, he was traded to the Cardinals and then purchased back by the Astros. He was included with the December 1974 trade of Lee May to Baltimore for Enos Cabell and Rob Andrews but Schlueter couldn't make it back to the bigs in any of those stops.
Schlueter passed away on May 13, 2010 from ataxia, a debilitating nerve disorder.
