Extractions: When the Astrodome opened in 1965, it was heralded as the "Eighth Wonder of the World." Houston's newest tourist attraction offered not only the spectacle of baseball inside an air-conditioned dome, but also prime entertainment facilities for the city's oil millionaires. For that opening season, the Astrodome's 53 luxury boxes cost between $15,000 and $34,000/year roughly $75,000-$175,000 in 2000 dollars. That November, Harris County residents voted 51-49 to approve plans for $465 million in sports-related construction: $200 million to renovate the Astrodome for football and other sports, and $265 million for a new downtown baseball stadium. (Despite the renovations, Houston would not receive a new NFL team until the city agreed to build an entirely new stadium.) Taxpayers would contribute $180 million toward the ballpark, financing their share through a 2% hotel tax and a 5% rental-car tax. Meanwhile, the Astros agreed to pay $52 million $37 million directly, $15 million through the sale of personal seat licenses and to execute an ironclad lease binding the team to the new park for thirty years. The Dotel trade and other offseason moves alienated Astros fans for another reason. After winning three straight division titles, owner Drayton McLane dumped three high-salaried players just before moving into a park he had said would increase club revenues by $20 million/year. With Hampton and Derek Bell now on the Mets, and Carl Everett an immediate fixture in the Sox outfield, the Astros collapsed all the way to the cellar. Unless the team recovers soon, McLane could be as popular in Houston as Wayne Huizenga is among Marlins fans.

The last season in the Astrodome also marked the end of an era for the franchise as well, as the Astros will now face greatly increased expectations for the future. Although they came very close to the World Series in two of the most memorable League Championship Series ever, the Astros have never made it to the Fall Classic. Now, after winning their division for each of the last three years, and with a state-of-the-art new ballpark set to generate beaucoup bucks for the team treasury, anything short of being on the field when the last out of the 2000 season is made will be viewed as a disappointment.

Extractions: Athletic Training Bidnight Madness Compliance Hall of Fame ... Endowment Funds John Goelz returns for his 20th season as the head coach at Sonoma State University. In 2004, Goelz led the Seawolves to the championship game of the NCAA West Regional for the second consecutive year. The team finished with a record of 39-28 marking the ninth straight year that SSU has finished with over 30 wins. With a career record of 636-413-4, Goelz is the winningest coach in any sport in SSU history. He is the 19th winningest active Division II coach and is 32nd all-time. Since 1999, Sonoma State has a record of 255-133-1, one of the best records in the country at any level. Coach Goelz has also seen 54 of his players sign professional contracts since his arrival in 1986. Since 2000, 20 players have been drafted or signed and last season the Seawolves saw four of their players drafted in the first eleven rounds of the Major League Baseball Draft. A pitcher during his playing days at San Francisco State, Goelz went on to be an assistant at SFSU to Al Figone from 1977-78 and to Orrin Freeman from 1979-82. Freeman is currently the Assistant General Manager of the Florida Marlins. During his time at SFSU, the Gators enjoyed their greatest success, finishing ranked in the national top twenty four times and participating in the NCAA West Regionals on three different occasions. From 1984-85, Goelz was the varsity baseball coach at Albany High School. After a third-place finish in 1984, Goelz led his team to the Alameda County Athletic League championship, finishing the season with an 18-8 mark and a final East Bay ranking of 12th.

Extractions: Main Gammons Column November 24, 2002 Liberty Bell: David Bell has signed a four year, $17 million dollar deal with the Phillies . Bell's a decent player. He put up 19 win shares last year for the Giants, the third best among position players on the Giants. He's no Rolen (28 win shares between the Phillies and Cardinals in 2002), but the Phillies are getting four years for the price of one. However, it should be noted that 19 is Bell's career high in win shares, and he is 30. Still, the Phillies have filled an important hole for them without breaking the bank. Still no SF angle on this deal yet. If they lose Kent also, Alou will be taking over a team that has lost 2 of it's 3 best position players. This may turn out to be a tougher job than Felipe thought it was going to be. Posted by David Pinto at 03:14 PM Baseball Navigation
