HOUSTON (AP) - Lance Berkman and Roy Oswalt signed one-day contracts and officially retired as Astros on Saturday.

Berkman and Oswalt were drafted by the Astros a year apart and came up through the minors together before Berkman made his major league debut in 1999 and Oswalt followed less than two years later.

"It's an honor to come back here and retire as an Astro," Oswalt said. "Lance and I both came up through the organization about the same time. We got to play together for a long time. The best thing about Houston was that it was always home. I know I'm speaking for myself, but I went to Philadelphia, Texas and Colorado afterwards, but Houston has always been home."
