The Lone Star Series (also, Silver Boot Series) is an annual Major League Baseball contest featuring Texas' two major league franchises, the Houston Astros of the National League and Texas Rangers of the American League. It is an outgrowth of the "natural rivalry" established by MLB as part of interleague play.
The winner of the 6-game series is awarded the Silver Boot. A 30-inch (760 mm) tall display of a size-15 cowboy boot cast in silver, complete with a custom, handmade spur. If the series is split (3-to-3), the winner is the club which scored the most runs over the course of the series.
Starting in 2013, the Astros will join the American League West with the Rangers and change their rivalry from an interleague to an intra-division rivalry.

Or strikes a sudden chill into my bones
And bids my hair stand up?”
