    the Mick hits the 1st homer in Astrodome history, in the 1st game played indoors in baseball history............at exactly 8:40 PM he crosses the plate.

    At the time it was the 8th Wonder of the World... not Mick, the Astrodome.

    That's a great pic but it makes me sad the Dome did not live, as the Astros' home, to see this day. I am glad that somebody thought to honor the Harris County Domed Stadium in this way, tho.
