Houston teams, athletes pay tribute to Barbara Bush

The late Barbara Bush was an avid Houston Astros fan. She was known to sit behind home plate and record statistics with her own scorecard.

Several Houston athletes and franchises are giving condolences and paying tribute to former First Lady Barbara Bush following her death Tuesday evening.

She was 92.

J.J. Watt, the Houston Texans, Rockets and Astros are among those who released statements on Mrs. Bush's death.

Mrs Bush was a staple at Houston Astros home games. She was an avid baseball fan and was known to sit behind home plate, recording statistics with her own scorecard.

After news of her death surfaced Tuesday afternoon, the Astros released a photo of one of her scorecards from 2006.

The game was Thursday, May 4, 2006, and the opponent was then-division rival St. Louis Cardinals. That's when both teams played in the National League Central Division, long before the Astros moved over to the American League.

Some of the familiar Astros names you may recognize from the scorecard: Hall of Famer Craig Biggio, Lance Berkman, Brad Ausmus and Andy Pettitte pitched.

While the Bush's usually left after the 7th inning, the Astros had already done the damage at that point.

Houston beat St. Louis, 4-3, that night.

Brad Lidge even recorded the save.
