Meet Chipalatta

Chip Bailey lives in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and is an author and  former sports editor and sportswriter who has followed the Astros for more than 40 years. A native of Natchitoches, La., Bailey enjoys watching baseball at most any level, especially pro and college.

Several years ago, he worked as an associate of Pastor John Bosman, who enjoyed giving nick names to those with whom he worked. He came up with Chipalatta, and it’s stuck.

This site will be updated regularly and often with a variety of new entries, including Chip’s books, as well as those about life, funny photos and quotes and, of course, plenty of entries about the Astros and sports in general.
