Did you know?
As we travel from one Major League Baseball stadium to the next, we are really enjoying how each stadium is completely different and has its own character, history, and architecture. Here are a few of the unusual facts about Minute Maid Park that we found especially interesting.

Advice and reflections from the Glanville Team
Thoughts from James
Houston has a great ballpark! It is indoors which was awesome because it was VERY warm outside and raining! We had my friend Raglan and his family with us and that made it even more fun. Our seats were in the first row of the outfield so we got to catch balls during the warm up and see the game from a different view point! They have a Minute Maid train filled with oranges inside the ballpark that runs on a track when there is a homer! That was fun to watch. There is every kind of treat and food you could want! I liked this ballpark!James
Minute Maid Park was great! The retractable roof was in use as the weather was very humid, and it was raining! We appreciated the dry seats and air conditioning! James is right – the Minute Maid train filled with oranges in left field is a fun attraction during Astros homers and for the win! The field is natural grass which is always great! The foul poles are sponsored by Chick-fil-A and have cows on the poles. One says” EAT MOR FOWL” which is funny from a cow, and the other one says “FOWL POLE”. The stadium is located in downtown Houston and was close to our hotel, which was nice.
As James mentioned, there were loads of food options. We had a great time with friends joining us on the tour! ALL in ALL Houston’s Minute Maid park gets two thumbs up!Christie
