Minute Maid Park in Houston: A fan’s guide
Minute Maid Park, home of the Houston Astros, opened its doors in 2000. Its natural grass surface and retractable roof brought open air baseball to Houston for the first time in 35 years. Originally named Enron Field, it was renamed in 2002.
Located at 501 Crawford Street in downtown Houston, it is easy to get to.
Tickets can be purchased online as well as at the park. We found tickets as high as $58 for Club level seats and as low as $1 for children 3 to 14 years old in the Outfield Deck. There is a $30 ticket that is all you can eat! Great deals are found in Major League Baseball. Wherever you choose to sit, it will be a fantastic experience. Standing room only is found in several locations at the park where a perfect view can be had.
If purchasing your tickets online select the "TicketFast" as your delivery option so that you may print your ticket immediately. No more waiting at Will Call.
Parking is easy at Minute Maid Park. There are many lots all around the stadium. Expect to pay around $10 for parking, depending how close you are. Any of the entrances to the Park can be used. It is easy to find your seat once inside. There are signs indicating the parking areas and price.
Don't forget to purchase your Astros souvenirs while at the game. T-shirts of your favorite player, baseballs, and pennants are found throughout the park. Every child needs to experience the thrill of a major league baseball game. Houston has made it affordable enough to make it a reality.
Take me out to the ballgame!
