Today’s Houston Matters is broadcasting from the Greater Houston Partnership’s downtown headquarters, just across the street from Minute Maid Park, which is home — of course — to the Houston Astros. And while baseball is ultimately a game, it is very much a business too. The more successful the business, the more likely the team is to be successful on the field.

And, so far this season, the Astros have been very successful on the field — with the best record in baseball and leading their division.

But, today, we focus on the business aspects of running a successful Major League Baseball franchise with Reid Ryan, president of the Astros.
