Former Astros announcer and Hall of Fame broadcaster Milo Hamilton is back on chemotherapy treatments, according to the Houston Astros website.

The 85-year-old has been battling chronic lymphocytic leukemia since 1974. He had quit traveling with the team several years ago but has been calling only home games.

Hamilton's broadcasting career started nearly 70 years and he still serves as a special advisor to Astros owner Jim Crane and president of business operations Reid Ryan.
