Thanks for that link! I remember going to see the Phillies play the Houston Colt 45s at Connie Mack Stadium when I was a kid. But I didn't see anything about Colt suing the Houston franchise to stop using the name "Colt 45s". In fact, it makes even less sense when you see that the original stadium where the Colt 45s played was called "Colt Stadium".
Did I miss it? Thanks.

Remember this was 64 and 65 and it probably was a joke about them being sued.
This was the first time I looked the Colt 45 s on the net.
Should have looked them up on the net in 65. :)
