HOUSTON -- Former Astros starting pitcher Shane Reynolds was inducted into the Astros Walk of Fame on Friday afternoon. He's the 16th person to be honored on the walk, which sits along Texas Ave., outside Minute Maid Park.
"When they called, I was very excited and very honored," said Reynolds, who makes his home in the Houston area. "I didn't do a lot of things as a player, other than on the field, that [attracted attention]. I didn't ask for that. But for them to do this for me, I think, is awesome. It's great for the Houston Astros to do something like that for the players."
Reynolds, 44, went 103-86 in 11 seasons with the Astros from 1992-2002 and was an anchor in the starting rotation when the Astros reached the playoffs in 1997-99 and 2001.
"I had a few good years, but I also had some really good players out there behind me also," he said. "That makes a difference. A good manager and good players helps pitchers out a lot."
Reynolds is the final Walk of Fame inductee this season.
