Houston Astros Rivalries to Watch

The Lone Star Series: Astros vs. Rangers

This rivalry is between the Astros and their next-door neighbor, the Rangers. The winner of the series each year gets to take home the Silver Boot, a giant trophy in the shape of a silver boot. Both teams have seen both post-season and championship-caliber play in recent years, with the Texans knocking the Astros out of the playoffs in the 2023 season.

Catch this rivalry in action on:

  • April 5 – 14
  • July 12 – 14
  • August 5 – 7

Houston Astros vs. New York Yankees

The Astros and Yankees rivalry is fairly young, but it’s a bitter feud with a significant post-season history between these two teams. It has really ramped up in intensity since 2013, when the Astros moved to the American League.

The Astros and the Yankees have met multiple times in the playoffs since then, with the Astros beating the Yankees out each and every time. It doesn’t help that many Yankees diehards believe that the Astro’s sign-stealing scandal cost their team a pennant in 2017.

You can watch these two teams go at it on:

  • March 28 – 31
  • May 7 – 9
