The Houston Astros' 1996 season was a season in American baseball. It involved the Houston Astros attempting to win the National League Central. The Astros finished in second place in the NL Central with an 82-80 record, six games behind the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Offseason

Regular season

On May 7 against Philadelphia, Jeff Bagwell reached the 500th run batted in (RBI) of his career with two home runs and four RBI.[2] By hitting his second upper-deck home run at Three Rivers Stadium on May 29 – it travelled 459 feet (140 m) – Bagwell joined longtime Pirate Willie Stargell as the only players to homer twice into the stadium's upper deck.[3] For the month of May, he batted .360 with .740 SLG, 10 HR, 31 RBI, scored 22 runs, and stole four bases. He was named NL Player of the Month, his fourth career monthly award.[4] On June 14, Bagwell tied a major league record with four doubles in one game against San Francisco.[5]

The Astros retired Nolan Ryan's number 34 on September 29, 1996.
