This Date in Astros History

Nov 14, 1966:Curt Schilling is born in Anchorage, AK. The sturdy righthander is 3-5 with eight saves in his one season in Houston (1991) before being traded to Philadelphia, a deal that Bill Wood probably regrets to this day.
Jan 10, 1991:First baseman Glenn Davis is traded to Baltimore for outfielder Steve Finley and pitchers Curt Schilling and Pete Harnisch. Davis would suffer a spring injury and never play effectively for the Orioles. All three players Houston acquired would later become stars although not so much for what they did while wearing Astro stars and stripes.
Aug 23, 1992:Jimmy Jones and three relievers outpitch Curt Schilling, 3-1, completing a three-game sweep over the Phillies and ending a 26-game road trip. Houston is 12-14 on the marathon tour. They manage just four hits off Schilling but two of them are RBI singles by Luis Gonzalez and Jeff Bagwell to give Jones all the runs he needs.
Mar 30, 1993:Astros release pitcher Jason Grimsley, whom they acquired for pitcher Curt Schilling the previous year. Grimsley catches on with the Cleveland Indians. He did not pitch an inning while in Houston. Schilling, meanwhile, becomes a six-time All-Star who is a pivotal member of three pennant-winners.
