Bogusevic to be guest on Astroline on Wednesday

Bogusevic, 27, spent most of his 2011 season with the Astros, hitting .287 (47x164) with four home runs and 15 RBI in 87 games. He started 35 games in the outfield, 32 of those coming in August and September, and hit .317 (38x120) with a .362 on-base percentage over his final 43 games of the season. Despite playing in just 40 games in right field, Bogusevic compiled nine outfield assists from the position, which ranked sixth in the National League. Bogusevic also provided one of the most memorable plays for Houston in 2011, connecting for a walk-off grand slam home run on August 16 vs. Chicago (NL). He was the first Astro to hit a walk-off grand slam since Gregg Zaun in 2002.

Hamilton began his Hall of Fame radio career as a disc jockey on the Armed Forces Radio Network during Thanksgiving week in 1945. The 2012 season will be his 28th season with the Astros and his 59th year broadcasting Major League Baseball.

Wednesday’s Astroline is the fourth of 18 scheduled shows during its five-month run leading into the 2012 baseball season, and the program is broadcast each Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. The program will move to Florida in March when the Astros report to Spring Training in Kissimmee, FL.

Astroline, presented by Budweiser, features interviews, news, and information on the Houston Astros. The show features a different guest each week, ranging from current and former Astros players to front office personnel.
