Transcript Vol. 3-No. 1 IONAL LEAGUE 1962 OFFICIAL PUBLICATION OF THE HOUSTON COLTS BASEBALL CLUB November, 1962 1963 SEASON TICKET SALES 5 MONTHS AHEAD OF '62 -PASS 3,000 SEAT MARK Season ticket sales for 1963 surpassed the 3,000 -seat mark on October 25 and put the Colt .45s season ticket campaign 5 months ahead of the 1962 sales. The tremendous use of the season boxes for business entertainment, coupled with the fine showing and finish of the 1962 Colt .45s has boosted the sales ahead of schedule. The .45s will again play 81 home games against their National League rivals. A season ticket is $265 per seat with most boxes in 8 seat arrangement. SEASON TICKET BENEFITS • Houston's Number One choice for business entertainment • Priority on parking spaces • Priority on seat options in domed air- conditioned stadium where, for the first time in history, box seats will feature foam rubber theatre type seats • Optional membership in Fast Draw Club • Exclusive charge account privileges for extra tickets • Choice location • No waiting in line for tickets • No last minute ticket worries • Are deductible expense when used for business purposes Added advantages for 1963 will be a new reserved parking system, a special charge plan for season ticket holders, signs of identification on each box when desired, and the new seating arrangement in the promenade section (see bottom right of first page). May Go Oyer 5,000 Mark If the Colt .45s go over the 5000 mark in season ticket sales they will rank among the first five or six teams in the major leagues in season ticket sales. The Los Angeles Dodgers traditionally lead both major leagues in season ticket sales. Other clubs which have developed good advance season ticket sales are the San Francisco Giants, Chicago White Sox, Minnesota Twins, New York Yankees, and the Detroit Tigers. For Season Ticket Information Call Kemper Kaiser RI-8-4500 .45s FIRST 3 DAYS The day-by-day standings of the .45s, who finished a surprising eighth, shows that Harry Craft's team was in first place three days, second one day, fourth 4 days, fifth 6 days, sixth 7 days, seventh 34 days, eighth 92 days, ninth 27 days, and they never occupied last place. The 1963 sales force ready to canvass Houston businesses are pictured above (I to r) pitcher Jim Umbricht, pitcher Russ Kemmerer, outfielder Carl Warwick, and third baseman Bob Aspromonte. SALES TEAM HEADED BY KEMPER KAISER Sales manager Kemper Kaiser had an illustrious sales force in high gear in the middle of October contacting leading Houston business concerns. Third baseman Bob Aspromonte, outfielders Carl Warwick and Al Spangler, and pitchers Dick Farrell, Jim Umbricht, Russ Kemmerer joined coach Lum Harris, broadcaster Loel Passe and advertising manager Earl Johnson on the sales team. Any of the group will be glad to call on you at your request. "Many Houston business concerns found that their box seats proved to be the most effective way to entertain customers last season," said Kaiser. "Our renewals for the 1963 season are coming in steadily and the new promenade seating seems to be very popular." KPRC SPORTS SHOW FEATURES COLT CASTERS A new 15-minute sports radio show was inaugurated Monday night Oct. 29 on KPRC at 7:15 p. m. The show, which will feature all sports, will be broadcast daily Monday through Friday from 7:15 p. m. to 7:30 p. m. Colt .45s baseball broadcasters Gene Els- ton and Loel Passe will handle the sports- cast format of general news items, interviews with leading sports figures throughout the country, and the "mail bag". The sports show will originate from the Fast Draw Club at Colt Stadium and will be produced and directed by Bob Boyne, producer of the Colt.45s broadcasts this past season. ELEVEN ROOKIES ON .45s 37 MAN ROSTER The Colt .45s 37-man winter roster includes 16 pitchers, 4 catchers, 11 infieldefs and 6 outfielders. This is three short of the major league 40- player limit. This will allow the Houston club to draft 3 players plus one bonus pick under the new major league draft rules. The major league draft will be held in Rochester, New York on November 26 and 27. There are 11 rookies on the roster, 8 of whom have spent some time with the .45s, either in spring training or during the season. They are: pitchers Jim Dickson and Wally Wolf, infielders Ernie Fazio, Rusty Staub and Glenn Vaughan, and outfielders Ron Davis, Aaron Pointer and Dave Roberts. The three complete newcomers are pitchers Tom Burgmeier and Alan Goldfield, a former Lamar High star, and catcher John Bateman. Veteran Dick Williams, recently purchased from Baltimore, is also a newcomer and Williams is the oldest member on the roster at 33. Slugging youngster Rusty Staub nosed out Glenn Vaughan as the youngest. Both are 18 but Vaughan was born two months ahead of Staub. Notable 1962 Colt .45s missing from the roster are Jim Pendleton, Al 'Heist and Bob Tiefenauer — all of whom are now on the Oklahoma City roster, but will be brought to spring training if they are not drafted this winter. COMPLETE ROSTER PAGE 3 PROMENADE BOXES REMODELED FOR 63 Pictured below is Colt .45s third baseman Bob Aspromonte handing season tickets to Mr. E. R. Edwards, sales manager of the Macgobar Co., in the new promenade box seat section which has been remodeled for the 1963 season. A total of 3,987 promenade box seats have been converted into individual boxes of 8- seat boxes. Some 500 box seats have been eliminated in the promenade section due to added aisles which will provide better viewing and convenience for the fans. Sffw*:<r HBnHHBHSi
