Exactly one year later, October 17, 1961, the Colt .45s announced their first big league roster. This was a year that showed tremendous progress in all phases of the organization—progress that continues each day in the offices of the Houston Colts —progress that will be placed before the fans of Texas and surrounding states in April of 1962 as the south's only major league baseball franchise. The Colts roster numbers 38 and includes 20 pitchers, three catchers, seven infielders and eight outfielders. Twenty- two of these men were purchased in the National League player pool in Cincinnati following the World Series for prices ranging from $125,000 to $50,000. Emphasis Is on Youth The average age of the Colts is 26.4 years. There are 18 players 25 years old or younger and 11 players over 30. Pendleton is the oldest at 37 and 18- year-old Arlich is the youngest on the squad. General manager Paul Richards and manager Harry Craft have selected five outstanding baseball men to serve on the coaching staff of the Colts — Jimmy Adair, Bobby Bragan, Cot Deal, Lum Harris and Jim Busby.
