   The husband of Carol Watson, one of our Signature artists, Bob Watson, was honored on March 5 when the Astros Foundation expanded their Urban Youth Academy with the dedication of the Bob Watson Education Center. The center includes classrooms, computer labs, and locker rooms to serve young athletes in the Houston area. In the last seven years, more than 160 baseball and softball players have received college scholarships, and six were selected in the MLB draft. Bob was MLB ’s second African American general manager when he took over the Astros in 1993. He later had the same job with the Yankees. He will be inducted into the Astros Hall of Fame this summer. During the speeches at the ceremony his kindness and willingness to help other players was a constant theme. We are very proud of Bob and Carol at WAS-H.
