The Houston Astros' 1992 season was a season in American baseball. It involved the Astros finishing fourth in the National League West with a record of 81 wins and 81 losses.

The Astros were forced to play 26 consecutive road games from July 27 through August 23, due to the Republican National Convention being held at the Astrodome from August 17–20. Houston went a respectable 12-14 on the trip, which saw the Astros play in all National League cities except Montreal, New York City, and Pittsburgh.

Following the road trip, the Astros won 25 of their final 38 games to finish at .500, an improvement of 16 games upon their franchise-worst 65-97 mark of 1991.

The Astros won six games on walk-off home runs, the most of any MLB team in 1992.[1]
