Jose Altuve is the second baseman for the Houston Astros baseball club.
I wrote this song honoring Altuve in 2012, his first full season in the majors.
At that time, he was the lone bright spot in an otherwise dismal season.
Today, in spite of playing for the lowly Astros, he is on his way to becoming a bonafide star.
As of today, he leads the AL in hits, steals and batting average.
He has a fielding percentage of .997.
In short, he is flat out AWESOME.
But he’s been my favorite Astro since the day he first broke in.
He brought real excitement to Astros fans like me for the first time in a long time.
He brought serious skills, heart, smarts and guts to the Astros lineup.
He has what it takes to win, and he wants to win.
PS: This song is on my forthcoming ManChildATX album, My Mouse Finger Is Insured for $10 Million
