101-year-old Astros fan has high hopes this season

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- As the Houston Astros head into the playoffs, they will be cheered on by a 101-year-old fan.

Walter Peine is a long-time baseball fan who cheered on the Houston Buffaloes, then the Colt 45's.

That team later became the Astros we all know and love.

Peine will turn 102 on October 20, and his birthday wish is to see the Astros make it all the way to the World Series next month.

He said his favorite player on this year's team is Jose Altuve.
