Native Houstonian Gary Kilpatrick shares his memories of the Astrodome. Kilpatrick had the opportunity to watch the construction of the Dome and later was hired to be a press box runner at the Astrodome during 1967 and 1968. Kilpatrick's job allowed him access to Astros games, Oiler games, and the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. Kilpatrick reminisces about the games he and his press box friends would play with the bat boys. Kilpatrick shares one of his favorite memories: escorting a photographer to the top of the Astrodome.
